  • The primary objective was to develop a computerized data bank of information on the Alaskan flora, based on collections at the Herbarium of the University of Alaska Museum (ALA). To maximize the effectiveness of this data bank, several collections-related activities had to be carried out prior to or concomitantly with data entry. Before the label data from the first specimen could be placed in a computer file it was mandatory that first we (1) prepare an important backlog of specimens from arctic Alaska, (2) develop the protocol for handling specimens, data input, and editing, and (3) define the categories ofmore » data to be entered and the conventions for consistent entry. Considerable effort has gone toward processng our large backlog of specimens. This work is almost completed, greatly enhancing our collection and the data bank derived from that collection. A total of 11,251 specimens have been accessioned between June 1980 and the present. With the accomplishment of these preliminary tasks, building the data bank became a matter of more or less mechanically following through various steps: select the taxonomic group to be entered, check to see that the data required are in the correct format, enter the data, edit the file, correct the file, and incorporate the file into the master file with the SELGEM programs. To data, over 2000 specimens have been logged.« less
  • Fairbanks failed to prepare for the deluge of construction-related equipment and personnel and its consequences. This book includes many effects, including prostitution, and rent gouging. The author presents community alternatives that were ignored. The author attempts to evaluate the impact of rapid growth and suggests that industry pay the social cost of disruption to the community.

  • Located in the southeast quadrant of Fairbanks, Alaska, the Arctic Surplus National Priorities List (NPL) site consists of salvaged material and scrap which have accumulated for more than 40 years. Operations at the site (1946 to 1976) have resulted in localized soil contamination with chlordane, polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxin/furan homologues (compounds of similar structure), and lead. Some surface soil lead contamination has been detected just beyond the site fence line. In addition, friable asbestos is found on-site. Remediation of the site has removed most of the localized on-site soil contamination and asbestos. The Arctic Surplus site is considered a public healthmore » hazard because of the potential for exposure to lead through ingestion of water from residential wells, and because of the past exposures of workers to asbestos, lead, and PCB's on-site. ATSDR determined that a community health investigation is needed to help address community concerns about cancer and other health outcomes.« less
