Abstract We report on the first record of a therizinosaur from Alaska. This record consists of a single pes track from the lower part of the Upper Cretaceous Cantwell Formation in Denali National Park, Alaska, United States. This is the northernmost occurrence for this group of dinosaurs, and the presence of this animal in Alaska offers the first support of the proposed biogeographic model of faunal exchange during the Cretaceous for these unusual theropods. 
Pterosaur tracks from the Lower Cantwell Formation (Campanian–Maastrichtian) of Denali National Park, Alaska, USA, with comments about landscape heterogeneity and habit preferences
We report on new records of pterosaur tracks from Alaska. Recent palaeontological investigations in the Lower Cantwell Formation of Denali National Park, central Alaska Range, Alaska, had resulted
An unusual association of hadrosaur and therizinosaur tracks within Late Cretaceous rocks of Denali National Park, Alaska
TLDR
This work reports the first North American co-occurrence of tracks attributable to hadrosaurs and therizinosaurs in the lower Cantwell Formation, Denali National Park, central Alaska Range, Alaska, suggesting that parameters defining the continental ecosystem of central Asia were also present in this part of Alaska during the Latest Cretaceous.

Dinosaur ichnology and sedimentology of the Chignik Formation (Upper Cretaceous), Aniakchak National Monument, southwestern Alaska; Further insights on habitat preferences of high-latitude hadrosaurs
TLDR
The ichnological record being uncovered in the Chignik Formation of southwestern Alaska is showing that the hadrosaur tracks here were also made in distal coastal and delta plain conditions, which may corroborate the habitat preference model for Cretaceous high-latitude dinosaurs and indicate that at least BeringianHadrosaurids had similar habitat preferences regardless of latitude.
A Paleopolar Dinosaur Track Site in the Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Prince Creek Formation of Arctic Alaska: Track Characteristics and Probable Trackmakers
ABSTRACT For the first time a dinosaur track site is identified in Maastrichtian paleopolar coastal plain deposits of the Prince Creek Formation (PCF) along the Colville River, North Slope of Alaska.
A diverse, high-latitude ichnofauna from the Late Cretaceous Wapiti Formation, Alberta, Canada
Abstract The Wapiti Formation in west-central Alberta preserves one of the most diverse Late Cretaceous terrestrial track records yet identified in Canada. At least seven morphotypes are recognized
A mid-Cretaceous dinosaur track assemblage from the Hengshan Formation in central Zhejiang, China
ABSTRACT The Cretaceous Hengshan Formation at the Baxian tracksite, central Zhejiang has yielded more than 20 sauropod tracks with a considerable size range (pes length ranging from 22.7–83.7 cm).
Terrestrial isotopic evidence for a Middle-Maastrichtian warming event from the lower Cantwell Formation, Alaska
Abstract Carbon stable isotope data (δ13C) and new radiometric dates indicate that the non-marine Late Cretaceous lower Cantwell Formation, central Alaska, registers the Middle-Maastrichtian Event

Dinosaurs on the North Slope, Alaska: High Latitude, Latest Cretaceous Environments
TLDR
Great distances of migration to contemporaneous evergreen floras and the presence of both juvenile and adult hadrosaurs suggest that they remained at high latitudes year-round, challenging the hypothesis that short-term periods of darkness and temperature decrease resulting from a bolide impact caused dinosaurian extinction.
