Fairbanks is Alaska's second largest community and residents commonly refer to it as the "Golden Heart of Alaska." Due to its central location Fairbanks has become the transportation, trade and service center for the vast Interior region encompassing some 200,000 square miles. The community was founded a century ago on the banks of the winding Chena River, which drains into the Tanana River immediately south of town. The Chatinika, Chena, and Salcha River drainages define the area surrounded by rolling hills to the north, east and west of the urban centers.
The Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB), a local government unit similar to a county, covers 7,361 square miles and has 82,840 residents. Within the Borough are two cities, Fairbanks and North Pole as well as several unincorporated communities. The Tanana Valley surrounds Fairbanks at an elevation of 436 feet above sea level and rises east to about 2,000 feet at the Canadian border. Fairbanks has stunning views of the Alaska Range to the south, including

Executive Summary
  • National Standard 8 of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation Management Act directs that "Conservation and management measures shall, consistent with the conservation requirements of this Act (including the prevention of overfishing and rebuilding of overfished stocks ), take into account the importance of fishery resources to fishing communities in order to (A) provide for the sustained participation of such communities, and (B) to the extent practicable, minimize adverse economic impacts in such communities." The Oceans Studies Board of the National Academy of Science's National Research Council (NRC) report on Individual Fishing Quotas, Sharing the Fish: Toward a National Policy on IFQs , explicitly recommends that "For existing IFQ programs, councils should be permitted to authorize the purchase, holding, management and sale of IFQ by communities."

The Threat of Climate Change to Arctic Human Communities Introduction The Arctic is home to some of the world's most distinctive mammals, millions of migratory and resident birds, a rich ice-edge community, and some of the world's major fisheries. It a biologically and culturally unique environment and one of the last places on Earth where natural conditions still prevail over much of the region. Unlike the ice-bound Antarctic, however, the Arctic has also been home to humans for more than 10,000 years. Today the region is culturally, politically, demographically and economically diverse, with settlements ranging from small indigenous communities to modern industrial cities. Indigenous cultures include Aleuts, who live primarily in coastal southwest Alaska; Inuit, who live on the coast and inland from northwestern Alaska east to Greenland; and Athabascans, who live mainly inland in eastern Alaska, the central Yukon, and the Northwest Territories of Canada; Dene, Saami, and Native groups in northern Russia. The environment and human cultures of the Arctic are inextricably linked.

    T he United States is in many ways a creation of a frontier experience. The push westward remains part of recent American history, and many still live who remember the days of early settlement, of the often heroic struggle with the land. The American frontier is largely gone today. Although humans presumably have the technology to live anywhere on the earth's surface, those areas of the United States that can be occupied with moderate physical and economic effort are already staked out. Extending as far south as the northern Great Lakes states and including the interior to the Canadian border, as well as parts of Alaska, the Northlands ( Map 15 : 19K) remains sparsely settled. The inhospitable nature of the physical environment plus the consequent thinness of settlement give the Northlands its special character. A HARSH ENVIRONMENT Not only are winter temperatures low across most of the region, but winters are long. The average time between the last frost in the spring and the first in the fall is roughly 135 days at the southern margins of the area but little more than 14 days along parts of the Arctic Ocean. Because virtually all major food crops need a growing season of longer than 90 days, they can be grown in only a few small areas along the southern margins. Summers, generally short and cool, can have surprisingly warm days. Maritime moderation is significant only along the peripheries, mainly in the east and west.

ALABAMA COURSE OF STUDY: GEOGRAPHY "This one-semester study of geography in the Seventh Grade emphasizes the knowledge and skills necessary to develop a geographic perspective. By the end of this course, students should understand the fundamental physical and human patterns on the Earth's surface as well as the processes that created these patterns. Representative areas of the world should be selected for detailed studies of the content standards. In this course students learn how to apply a geographic perspective to the past, present, and future. This Seventh Grade study of geography supports the study of world history in the Eighth and Ninth Grades as well as the study of U.S. history in the Tenth and Eleventh Grades. The six essential elements of geography are used to organize the content standards. Geographic skills and perspectives ( Geography for Life , 1994) are interwoven throughout the content standards." ( Alabama Course of Study Social Studies , Bulletin 1998, No 18, p. 72.) Geographic Elements The World in Spatial Terms The structuring of geographic information, the ordering of knowledge into real and mental maps, and the spatial analysis of that information.

CENSUS GEOGRAPHY Understanding the geographic components of the census is crucial when we are using census data. Since many of our planning and programming decisions are based on political or legal definitions of a region or area, we need to be aware of the geography by which census data is reported. For example one can estimate population denominators for city-based data (a political area) using the census but in order to examine the city by smaller geographic areas statistical area data must be examined (e.g., block, census tracts, etc.). Political and statistical areas are not subsets of each other. Although a large city may be composed of multiple census tracts, tracts near the city borders would overlap those borders. Special algorithms must be developed when attempting to combine data from political and statistical areas. One area of geography not considered census geography are postal codes or zip codes. The Census Bureau does report data in STF3 by zip code but does not collect data by this geographic level. In addition zip code level data is reported at least a couple of years post release of other censes data. Following is a description of the political and the statistical areas as defined by the Census Bureau.
