ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the rivers in Northwest Alaska. The small hills and marshy valleys and the great deltas of the Noatak and Kobuk rivers form the nucleus of the Seward Peninsula, along with the uplands, foothills, and headwater Brooks Range mountains. The rivers drain almost 25,000 square miles. River bottomlands are occupied by sparse spruce forests and tundra vegetation covers hillsides and rolling plains throughout the region. Layer of permafrost covered the region's shallow lakes and tundra marshes. Two rivers drain the southwest of the Seward Peninsula to enter the Norton Sound. They are the Unalakleet and Koyuk rivers.
