With 586,400 square miles spanning almost 20 degrees of latitude, approximately 33,000 miles of coastline influenced by ocean waters and sea ice, and altitudes from sea level to the highest point in North America, Alaska has a wide range of weather patterns. We've created a webpage with general information about Alaska and it's regions at www.film.alaska.gov/filming.htmSoutheast: This dramatic coastal region is rainforest and glacier territory with a temperate, moist, maritime climate.
