This article offers a critical review of eight tradable permit markets: water permits at Fox River, Wisconsin; the U.S. leaded gasoline phase-out; sulfur dioxide credits under the U.S. Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990; the Regional Clean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM) for controlling ozone and acid rain in Southern California; renewable energy credit trading at the regional level in the United States; individual transferrable quotas for fisheries at the national level in New Zealand; carbon credits traded under the European Union-Emissions Trading Scheme; and carbon offsets permitted under the Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol. By "critical" the article does not fully weigh the costs and benefits...

The US Geological Survey, in cooperation with the National Park Service, mapped 35 7.5-minute quadrangles, within a 2-mile-wide+ corridor centered on the Parkway, from BLRI (Blue Ridge Parkway) Mile Post (MP) 0 near Afton, Virginia southward to MP 218 at Cumberland Knob, approximately 1.3 km south of the Virginia – North Carolina State Line. Detailed bedrock geologic mapping for this project was conducted at 1:24,000-scale by systematically traversing roads, trails, creeks, and ridges within and adjacent to the 2-mile-wide+ corridor along the 216.9-mile length of the BLRI in Virginia. Geologic data at more than 23,000 station points were collected during this project (September 2009 – February 2014), with approximately...

The vegetation and landcover of Valley Forge National Historical Park (VAFO) were mapped to the association level of the National Vegetation Classification System developed by The Nature Conservancy and network of Natural Heritage Programs. The mapping process was based on the USGS-NPS Vegetation Mapping Program with some modifications due to the size of the mapped polygons. A total of 308 plots were used to assess the thematic accuracy of the database.The estimated overall thematic accuracy of the database is 81.20 percent. At a 90 percent confidence interval, the estimated minimum overall thematic accuracy is 77.40 percent and the estimated maximum is 85.00 percent. Based on hypothesis testing, the final association...

Unconformity between Mount Rainier lava and the Stevens Ridge Formation at Margaret Falls. The 500-foot cliff over which the cascade tumbles was carved from an intracanyon flow of Mount Rainier andesite. This flow rests on tilted tuffaceous sedimentary rocks of the Stevens Ridge Formation in the foreground. The cliff cuts diagonally across the intracanyon flow, revealing the curving contact of the flow against the wall of the old canyon that the lava filled. Columnar jointing in the lava fans out to meet the canyon wall, staying perpendicular to the cooling surface. A recent ablation moraine from Cowlitz Glacier mantles bedrock in the foreground. Mount Rainier National Park, Washington. ca. 1959. Figure 45, U.S....
