  • Examining the relationship between snowfall and wildfire patterns in the western United States
  • Applied climatology ; Correlation ; Forest fire ; Snow ; Snow cover ; United States of America ; Western United States
  • The AA. conducted an examination of the spatial and temporal relationships and correlations between snow cover and wildfire from 1986 through 1996 in the 11 western states of the United States. Snow-cover and wildfire data were aggregated
  • and normalized for each state, as well as for the entire western region. No strong correlation was found for the entire western United States, nor did state aggregations show signs of consistent yearly correlation between measures of snow cover and wildfire
  • . Nevertheless, a few states experienced above-average acreage burned totals following winters with above-average snow cover.

  • This paper examines modern climate analogues of the western United States for 18,000 and 9000 yr B.P. in order to explain patterns of spatial heterogeneity. The study area of this paper includes the United States west of 93°W in order to cover

  • A pedagogical unit designed to show students why the European Community was formed, emphasizing the themes of movement and regional change in response to economic forces. - (DWG)
  • Comparison of soils in midwestern United States and western Europe with the interglacial record
  • Western Europe and midwestern United States are best explained by relatively long interglaciations or the development of composite soils over a number of temperate periods. Climatic contrasts between the interglaciations appear to have been overemphasized
  • The effect of federal wilderness on county growth in the intermountain western United States
  • Demographic change ; Economic impact ; Employment ; Land ; Mountain ; Regional economy ; Rocky Mountains ; United States of America ; Wilderness
  • The paper finds, for a sample of 250 nonurban counties in the eight states of the intermountain west, no evidence that the existence of federal wilderness is directly or indirectly associated with either population-density or total-employment
  • Holocene rock varnish microstratigraphy and its chronometric application in the drylands of western USA
  • Arid area ; Climatic variability ; Correlation ; Dating ; Desert ; Holocene ; Lithology ; Micromorphology ; Quaternary ; United States of America ; Western United States
  • Analyses of hundreds of rock varnish samples from latest Pleistocene and Holocene geomorphic features in the drylands of western USA reveal a regionally replicable Holocene microlamination sequence. This radiometrically calibrated and climatically
  • correlated Holocene microlamination sequence was then used as a unique correlative dating tool to determine surface exposure ages of geomorphic and geoarchaeological features in western USA deserts. The results indicate that, when properly applied
  • , the varnish microlamination dating technique has the great potential to yield numerical age assignments for surface stone tools, petroglyphs, and geoglyphs of prehistoric age in the drylands of western USA.

  • Geography at Montana State University
  • Geographical practice ; Montana ; Research ; Teaching of geography ; United States ; University
  • This geography program evolved from strong links with geology since the 1940s. Its applied emphasis on landuse and environmental problems of Montana fits into the mold of many public universities in the Western USA. - (DWG)

  • Characterizing the north pacific jet stream for understanding historical variability in western United States winter precipitation
  • Atmospheric circulation ; Climate oscillation ; Climatic variability ; ENSO ; Ocean atmosphere interaction ; Precipitation ; Teleconnection ; United States of America ; Weather type ; Western United States ; Winter
  • The AA. examined historical winter-season relationships among precipitation across the western United States, the northern Pacific jet stream (NPJ) across the northern Pacific Ocean basin, and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon
  • to determine if the NPJ significantly adds to the existing ENSO-based understanding of inter-annual variability in precipitation. The results indicate that the NPJ is significantly related to winter precipitation across a much larger area of the western United
  • States than the ENSO signal. For areas where the ENSO signal is significantly related to precipitation, there generally exists a stronger or more consistent NPJ-precipitation relationship. The results indicate that there is value in considering seasonal
