    Soundings in the Gulf of Alaska have been made systematically since the middle 1920's. On the basis of these soundings certain areas of similar topographic relief have been defined as physiographic provinces and placed into a physiographic classification. As the data have increased and as new sounding techniques have been developed, the province boundaries have been altered and even the classification system has been changed. Although these modifications in apptoach to research on submarine physiography are apparent in studies of each ocean, an excellent illustration is provided by the Gulf of Alaska because of its small size aod diversified physiography.
