Levels of Persistent Organic Pollutants Found in the Blood of Sea Otters Captured in the Western Aleutian Islands and Southeast Alaska in 1997
The data consist of levels of organic pollutants found in the blood of sea otters captured from five areas in the western aleutian Islands and in Cross Sound in southeast Alaska. For each location, the sample size, and the median and range of values for each compound is provided. The compounds are PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), DDTs (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethanes), HCHs (hexachlorocyclohexanes), chlordane, HCB (hexachlorocyclobenzene), and dieldrin.

Population production and modelling mortality--an application of geographic information systems in health inequalities research
Hydrates in nature have been known for a long time. In the last couple of decades the possibility of commercial utilization of natural hydrates has arisen as an alternative energy source. This paper asks 21 questions that, in the author’s opinion, need to be addressed and answered correctly before one can be confident one understands the scope of the problem one is facing in attempting to address the role of natural hydrates, both commercially and geologically.
Potential Effects on Fertility and Child Health and Survival of Birth- Spacing Preferences in Sub-Saharan Africa
This dataset is a compilation of forest insect, disease and abiotic damage mapped by aerial detection surveys on forested areas in the United States. At this time, the National Aerial Survey Data Standards require only mortality and defoliation data be collected and reported. However, many cooperators collect data on other types of damage and therefore, the national database has been designed to accommodate these data. Low-level flights, typically 1,000 to 2,000 feet above ground level, are used to map forest damage. Observers use paper maps, typically 1:100,000 scale USGS maps, upon which they record the damage. There is also a digital sketchmap system that may be used. The digital system uses GPS to display the...
