W. Oswood also created numerous depressions that are filled with water and also areas that, due to tectonics, appear to be sinking and forming depressions that form sediment-filled lake basins. Numerous lakes, particularly in the Coast Ranges, have a dog-leg character and are termed offset lakes reflecting the lateral movements of fault systems. In coastal areas, the accumulation of beach sands may close valleys or embayments and form coastal lagoons. These are frequently breached by the ocean and may drain.

Canadian Arctic Expedition: Science on a Shoestring This expedition to northern Alaska and Canada, which took place between 1913 and 1918, was organized by Vilhjalmur Stefansson, an explorer and anthropologist (Fig. 2) .
