While the US mainstream media kept the public distracted with the "Boston snow" story during the winter, Alaska was warm, dry, and setting up for the coming summer burning.

    “Scientists Struggle To Save Vital Seagrasses From Coastal Pollution” • Seagrasses grow along coastlines nearly everywhere around the world, and they can store twice as much carbon in a given area as temperate and tropical forests. But the over 70 species of seagrasses in coastal habitats are among the most poorly protected. Because of global warming, there has been concern in the United States and internationally, that the country should reduce total greenhouse gas which is relatively high per capita and is the second largest in the world after China, as of In .

Fire-climate zones of coastal Alaska. Odgen, UT: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, (OCoLC) So in Alaska, climate change has set a vicious cycle in motion. The warmer the temperature, the drier the summer - and so, the greater the risk of forest fires, which then release ever more carbon.

Alpine tundra is found at the highest elevations on all mountain ranges of Alaska, on exposed ridges in the Arctic, and in western and southwestern coastal areas [16,19,92].

Within each, a fine-grained mosaic of vegetation types occurs. Tundra and boreal forest communities are intermingled over large areas of Alaska and Canada. The study area for the mapping project inclu km2 of the coastal plains and adjacent mountains of the larger Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska.

The area is bounded by the Canning River to the west, the Alaska-Canada border to the east, the Beaufort Sea to the north, and the Brooks Mountain Range to the south.

Taiga (/ ˈ t aɪ ɡ ə /; Russian: тайга́, IPA: ; relates to Mongolic and Turkic languages), generally referred to in North America as boreal forest or snow forest, is a biome characterized by coniferous forests consisting mostly of pines, spruces, and larches.

The taiga or boreal forest is the world's largest land biome.

Biogeoclimatic ecosystem classification is a system of ecological classification widely used in British Columbia. The system has been expanded by the B.C. Forest Service from the pioneering work of V.J. Krajina and his students.

The recognized units result from a synthesis of vegetation, climate, and soil by: H. Shepard (9) divided the Pacific Coast States into seven zones of "forest fire climate" based on: (1) precipitation, (2) mean drought period, (3) maximum drought period, (4) average low rela- tive humidity, and (5) number of days in which relative humidity went below 35 percent for the period April through October.

ABSTRACT ABSTRACT Hu OPP Rupp OPP Intellectual Merit: Recent observations attest to the profound ecological and societal consequences of climatic change in northern high latitudes, including a doubling of area burned in the boreal forests of western North America in the past 30 years, attributed primarily to anthropogenic warming.

Streams that exhibit increased discharge are transporting more nutrients (Raymond et al. ) and base cations (Godsey et al. ), which cause eutrophication and affect the pH of receiving waters: streams, lakes, and coastal zones (Figure 4).
