    Description / Table of Contents: This book is intended to introduce the reader to examples of the range of practical problems posed by "Global Warming". It includes 11 chapters split into 5 sections. Section 1 outlines the recent changes in the Indian Monsoon, the importance of greenhouse gases to life, and the relative importance of changes in solar radiation in causing the changes. Section 2 discusses the changes to natural hazards such as floods, retreating glaciers and potential sea level changes. Section 3 examines planning cities and transportation systems in the light of the changes, while section 4 looks at alternative energy sources. Section 5 estimates the changes to the carbon pool in the alpine meadows of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The 11 authors come from 9 different countries, so the examples are taken from a truly international set of problems.

    In:  Supplement to: Harris, Stuart A (1983): Infilled fissures in loess, Banks Peninsula, New Zealand. Polarforschung, 53(2), 49-58, hdl:10013/epic.29537.d001
    Publication Date: 2020-01-18
    Description: Infilled fissures are described from the interface between two loess deposits on Banks Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand. Both loesses differ from the other loesses by having a solifluction deposit at their base consisting of angular basalt fragments of the same angularity as fresh frost shattered basalt mixed with the loess. Typically, the fissures are narrow and up to 160 cm deep while the infilling of the overlying loess shows no obvious structure. They occur mainly at higher elevations on south (poleward) facing slopes, and the host loess forms a fragipan of high density. They are most readily explained as being seasonal frost fissures or more probably ice-wedge casts, which would have required either permafrost or deep seasonal frost for their formation. If permafrost had existed, this would imply a cooling of the mean annual temperatures by at least 16 to 18°C.

    Notes: Summary The effects of glucose on cellular respiration were examined in suspensions of rabbit cortical tubules. When glucose was removed from the bathing fluid, oxygen consumption (QO2) decreased from 18.6±0.8 to 15.7±0.5 nmol O2/mg protein·min (P〈0.01). The transported but nonmetabolized analogue of glucose, α-methyl-d-glucoside (αMG), was found to support QO2 to the same extent as glucose. These observations were also evident in the presence of butyrate, a readily oxidized substrate of the renal cortex. Additional studies with nystatin and ouabain indicated that glucose-related changes in QO2 were the result of changes in Na, K-ATPase associated respiration. The effect of glucose was localized to the luminal membrane since phlorizin (10−5 m), a specific inhibitor of liminalk glucose-sodium cotransport, also significantly reduced QO2 by 10±1%. Phlorizin inhibition of QO2 was also evident in the presence of αMG but was abolished when glucose was removed from the bathing medium. Finally, measurement of NADH fluorescence showed that addition of glucose (5mm) to a tubule suspension causes an oxidation of NAD. These data are all consistent with glucose acting to increase respiration by stimulating sodium entry at the luminal membrane (via glucose-sodium cotransport) followed by increased sodium pump activity and its associated increase in mitochondrial respiration.

    Notes: EPA's Risk Assessment Guidance for Superfund (RAGS) and later documents provide guidance for estimating exposures received from suburban and agricultural activity patterns and lifestyles. However, these methods are not suitable for typical tribal communities whose members pursue, at least in part, traditional lifestyles. These lifestyles are derived from a long association with all of the resources in a particular region. We interviewed 35 members of a Columbia River Basin tribe to develop a lifestyle-based subsistence exposure scenario that represents a midrange exposure that a traditional tribal member would receive. This scenario provides a way to partially satisfy Executive Order 12898 on environmental justice, which requires a specific evaluation of impacts from federal actions to peoples with subsistence diets. Because a subsistence diet is only a portion of what is important to a traditional lifestyle, we also used information obtained from the interviews to identify parameters for evaluating impacts to environmental and sociocultural qualify of life.

    Notes: Exposure scenarios are a critical part of risk assessment; however, representative scenarios are not generally available for tribal communities where a traditional subsistence lifestyle and diet are relevant and actively encouraged. This article presents portions of a multipathway exposure scenario developed by AESE, Inc. in conjunction with the Spokane Tribal Cultural Resources Program. The scenario serves as the basis for a screening-level reasonable maximum exposure (RME) developed for the Midnite Uranium Mine Superfund site. The process used in developing this scenario balances the need to characterize exposures without revealing proprietary information. The scenario and resulting RME reflect the subsistence use of original and existing natural resources by a hypothetical but representative family living on the reservation at or near the mine site. The representative family lives in a house in a sparsely populated conifer forest, tends a home garden, partakes in a high rate of subsistence activities (hunting, gathering, fishing), uses a sweat lodge daily, has a regular schedule of other cultural activities, and has members employed in outdoor monitoring of natural and cultural resources. The scenario includes two largely subsistence diets based on fish or game, both of which include native plants and home-grown produce. Data gaps and sources of uncertainty are identified. Additional information that risk assessors and agencies need to understand before doing any kind of risk assessment or public health assessment in tribal situations is presented.
