climate, weather, and political behavior by Alexander H Cohen An Abstract Of a thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Political Science in the Graduate College of The University of Iowa. With regard to the falling sea level along (e.g.) the south-eastern coast of Alaska the apparent fall in sea level is because the land has risen at a number of locations due to the removal of ice mass, so a tide gauge attached to the land will . If early people followed the coastal migration route from northeast Asia, along Beringia, and down the coast of North America, then coastal archaeological sites dating earlier t 14 C yr B.P. should exist on paleocoastlines of similar age along North America's Pacific margin, but these have yet to be found.

Not surprisingly, climate change affects different landscapes and regions in different ways. In Alaska, one consequence of warming is coastal erosion. These photos show an area near Drew Point, along Alaska's northern.

Covering an area ofsquare miles and almost 20 degrees of latitude from about 51°N to 71°N, the spatial coverage of Alaska is quite expansive. Given the high latitude environment, the state experiences extreme seasonal variability in solar radiation.
The southern coast experienced below average snowfall totals every month during the / winter season. Conversely, Bettles, Nome, Kotzebue, and Utqiaġvik received above average snowfall for the season.

Along the coast of northern Chile this lead to a general aridification during the 20 th century expressed by a retrogression of Loma vegetation north of 24°S. Alaska is home to 40% ( of ) of the federally recognized tribes in the United States.
The small number of jobs, high cost of living, and rapid social change make rural, predominantly Native, communities highly vulnerable to climate change through impacts on traditional hunting and fishing and cultural connection to the land and sea. Because most of these communities. CLAMP (Climate-Leaf Analysis Multivariate Program) uses Correspondence Analysis of 29 rigorously defined character states of foliar physiognomy to order leaf samples.
The database of modern vegetation comprises samples, each composed of >19 species of woody dicotyledons collected proximal to a meteorological by: Those of us in the lower forty-eight states tend to think of Alaska as an unremitting wasteland of frigid temperatures, ice, and snow.
But in reality, because of its immense size and its position at the edge of the Arctic, Alaska has a remarkably varied and complex climate.

TOPOGRPHIC FEATURES – Alaska is the westernmost extension of the North American Continent. Its east-west span covers a distance of 2, miles, and from north to south a distance of 1, miles.
The State’s coastline, 33, miles in length, is 50 percent longer than that of the conterminous United States. In addition to the Aleutian Islands, hundreds of. The climate varies widely throughout the state. Anchorage's summer weather is pleasant and the winters are mild. Fairbanks, the Interior and parts of the Bush region experience Alaska's most extreme weather conditions with average temperatures ranging from 22ºC (72°F) in high summer to ºC (°F) in winter.
Multivariate statistical methods are used to analyze data in which 1) several variables are observed for each subject (or case) and 2) the distribution of those variables cannot be reduced to a univariate distribution.

In an ironic exclamation point to swift regional climate change in and near the Arctic, the average temperature observed at the weather station at Utqiaġvik has now changed so rapidly that in Novemberit triggered an algorithm designed to detect artificial changes in a station’s record and disqualified itself from the NCEI Alaskan temperature analysis.

These include: climate patterns such as the El Nino, effects from the melting of modern and ancient ice sheets, and geologic processes, such as plate tectonics. About Lesson 3. In Lesson 2, we focused on atmospheric observations documenting historical changes in the climate system.
In this lesson, we will turn to other evidence of climate change, including paleoclimate data that can be used to document, albeit with added uncertainty, more distant past changes in climate, and other variables documenting changes in the climate. This study presents the variability and trends of landfalling ARs (LARs) along the higher (°–°N) and lower (°–°N) latitudes of British Columbia and southeastern Alaska (BCSAK) during the – by: 1.

Linear statistical estimators are used to examine 29 years of nonseasonal, monthly-mean, tide-gauge sea-level data along the west coast of North America.
The objective is exploration of the structure, and causes of nearshore ocean variability over time scales of months to years at 20 stations from Alaska to Mexico.

Dynamical downscaling uses regional models to downscale the coarse output of global climate models and reanalyses to finer spatial and temporal resolution so that such data can be better used by stakeholders for research and planning for future climate change.
Southern Hemisphere winter south of 70° is currently and earlier records: warming along the west coast of North America and Alaska and cooling of the North Pacific Ocean. In a multivariate analysis of observed climate, extrapolation to the future suggests.

The Multivariate ENSO Index (MEI) is the unrotated, first principal component of six observables measured over the tropical Pacific (see NOAA ESRL MEI, Wolter & Timlin, ,). To compare the global mean sea level to the MEI time series, we removed the mean, linear trend, and seasonal signals from the day smoothed global mean sea level.
