Lower Paleozoic carbonate rocks of the Baird Mountains quadrangle, western Brooks Range, Alaska

Lower Paleozoic carbonate rocks in the Baird Mountains quadrangle form a relatively thin, chiefly shallow-water succession that has been thrust-faulted and metamorphosed to blueschist and greenschist facies. Although this succession was thought to be mostly Devonian until recently, a large part of it is in fact pre-Silurian in age.Middle and Upper...

Mortalities of kelp-forest fishes associated with large oceanic waves off central California, 1982-1983

Observations of three incidents of the mass mortality of nearshore fishes are reported; each corresponded to periods of high-amplitude, long-period swells during the 1982-1983 El Niño event along the coast of central California. Members of the nearshore kelp forest fish assemblage, primarily of the genus Sebastes, accounted for 96% of the...

Resurrection Peninsula and Knight Island ophiolites and recent faulting on Montague Island, southern Alaska

The Resurrection Peninsula forms the east side of Resurrection Bay (Fig. 1). The city of Seward is located at the head of the bay and can be reached from Anchorage by highway (127 mi;204 km). Relief ranges from 1,434 ft (437 m) at the southern end of the peninsula to more than 4,800 ft (1,463 m) 17 mi (28 km) to the north. All rock units composing...

Winter diets of common murres and marbled murrelets in Kachemak Bay, Alaska

Knowledge of the winter diets of seabirds in high latitudes like Alaskan waters has been an elusive aspect of their biology. Scanty information on winter diets of Common Murres (Uria aalge) are available from the Pribilof Islands (Preble and McAtee 1923), California (Baltz and Morejohn 1977), Kodiak Island (Kraznow and Sanger 1986), Newfoundland (...

[Book review] The geochronology and evolution of Africa

This book was written 'to provide an up-to-date data bank from which those wishing to construct models concerned with the evolution of Africa .... can draw.' As such, it attempts a survey of 'integrated geology and geochronology' of the African continent throughout the Precambrian and into the Phanerozoic. Political and language divisions often...

Later Paleozoic and Early Jurassic fossil ages from the McHugh Complex: A section in Geologic studies in Alaska by the U.S. Geological Survey during 1985 Circular 978

Late Mississippian through Early Pennsylvanian and Early Jurassic microfossils were collected from the type locality of the McHugh Complex (Clark, 1973) along the Seward Highway southeast of Anchorage (fig. 36). Radiolarians collected indicate that same of the oceanic rocks in the McHugh Complex are Early Jurassic in age. Conodonts extracted...

Sequential tests for infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus in individuals and populations of sockeye salmon

The incidence and titer distribution of infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus in cavity fluid from spent female sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) varied little when fish from a naturally spawning population were sampled three times on alternate days. However, when prespawning female sockeye salmon from a second population were individually...

Maps and tables showing data and analyses of semiquantitative emmission spectrometry and atomic-absorption spectrophotometry of rock samples, Ugashik, Bristol Bay, and part of Karluk quadrangles, Alaska

The accompanying maps and tables show analytical data and data analyses from rock samples collected in conjunction with geologic mapping in the Ugashik, Bristol Bay and western Karluck quadrangles from 1979 through 1981. This work was conducted under the auspices of the Alaska Mineral Resource Assessment Program (AMRAP). A total of 337 samples...

Evaluation of Alaskan wetlands for waterfowl

Few studies have focused specifically on use of Alaskan wetlands by waterfowl. However, substantial information on the values of wetlands is available from studies on individual species or that were conducted for other purposes. Most investigators have found it most effective to classify habitat use on the basis of observed distribution patterns...

A natural epizootic of infectious haematopoietic necrosis in imported Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., reared in the enzootic region

In June 1984, fry of Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., (0-3 g mean weight), being reared in a hatehery operated by the University of Washington, began to die and infectious haematopoietic necrosis (IHN) was diagnosed. A total of 40 000 fry were being held in 11 tanks. Mortality due to IHN was noticeable in three tanks, losses being heavy in one and...
