Sorry — it’s not that
kind of Slope.

Geography
13
In fact, despite the name, it’s not
much of a “slope” at all.

Geography
14
Here’s why —
The Arctic or “North”
Slope is a broad
drainage field
between the Brooks
Mt. Range and Arctic
Ocean.

Course Number: NSTC-03.
Geography
15
On the surface, the land is snow covered almost
10 months of the year.
Due to its arctic location, the ground is frozen
under the surface to an average depth of 1500
feet, in a condition known as permafrost.
In the summer when the top 2 feet of soil thaws,
the ground cover called tundra supports over
250 species of plants, but NO TREES.
Over 230 species of birds and numerous other
wildlife such as bears, fox, caribou, and musk ox
call the area home.

Weather
16
The weather varies from balmy summer highs in the 40s and
average winter lows around -20F, with extremes in both
directions. Annual precipitation is a dry 4.5 inches, with an
average snowfall of 33 inches.

Ownership
17
Most of the oilfield lands are leased from the
State and Federal governments and operated
by a consortium of oil-producing companies.
Much of the housing and operations are
located within the lease boundaries, with
many contractor companies basing their
operations just outside of “the lease” in the
town of Deadhorse, Alaska.
