Terrain Unit Mapping for Alaska Standalone Pipeline
R&M is supporting the Alaska Standalone Pipeline (ASAP) project with terrain unit mapping for the pipeline alignment from Prudhoe Bay to Cook Inlet. This effort involves using interpretation of stereo imagery, terrain analysis, LiDAR and geologic information to map landforms expected to occur from the ground surface to a depth of about 20’ to 25’. These landforms, or terrain units, provide information on soils, bedrock geology and geomorphology to document geological/geotechnical conditions that will affect the design and construction of the pipeline. All data is produced in GIS format for incorporation with the ASAP data management system.
