  • Geographic Variation Across the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan
    • Abstract: How strange and how interesting a group would be formed if an individual from each nation whose rivers have their first source in Pamir were to meet upon its summit.The Pamir Mountains of Central Asia anchor the center of the most extensive mountain grouping on Earth. As famously chronicled by Marco Polo in the thirteenth century, the area is also a crossroads of diverse natural and human phenomena. People and crops in five downstream states rely on melting snow and ice from the High Pamir. Complicated tectonics constantly reshapes this quasi-rectangular highland knot (Komatsu 2016). Precipitation and high-velocity winds can originate from every cardinal direction.Soviet-era geographers divide the Pamir into ... Read More

  • Painting a Place: A Spatiothematic Analysis of Murals in East Los Angeles
    • Abstract: Moving along one of the main thoroughfares in the barrio of East Los Angeles, one is met with a rich assortment of sensory inputs: dense residential neighborhoods, gently rolling topography, bursts of music from street corners and passing cars, occasional whiffs of jasmine, clusters of people waiting at bus stops, the constant background whir of traffic, the warm aroma of fresh corn tortillas, and, every now and then, a large and vibrantly colored mural. Pausing to examine these murals reveals that they can be read, just as any text, giving the viewer/reader a notion of the processes operating in the places in which they exist. In the case of East Los Angeles presented here, murals provide windows into the inner ... Read More

  • Navigating Drought in California: Lessons from Down-Under
    • Abstract: California’s cycles of drought and flood, and the persistent idea that there is some such thing as “normal” conditions, shape the way water is managed in fundamental ways. California’s most recent drought began in the winter of 2011–12, lasting into 2017. Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency in 2014, calling on Californians to (voluntarily) conserve water (Brown 2014). Early response to the governor’s drought proclamation was strikingly ambivalent, particularly in Southern California. The regional water wholesaler, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD), had adequate reserves to meet water demand, and stated that there was no need for mandatory conservation or other water use ...

  • Institutional Obstacles to Beaver Recolonization and Potential Climate
           Change Adaptation in Oregon, USA
    • Abstract: Over the past decade in the Western United States, several nongovernment groups and individuals within government agencies have become interested in assisting beaver recolonization. These agents are motivated primarily by concerns with habitat restoration. Research in Oregon and Washington shows that beaver dam/pond systems can significantly enhance habitat for salmonids (Pollock with various co-authors: 2007, 2004, 2003; Burnett et al. 2007) and for fifty of the 115 species identified for special treatment by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (2006b; see also Müller-Schwarze and Sun 2003). Other actors are also interested in the ability of beaver to create wetland habitat as a way to moderate the ... Read More

  • Muscling into Meadows: A Preliminary Dendrochronological Analysis of
           Recent Conifer Encroachment in Mount Rainier’s Subalpine Meadows
    • Abstract: Subalpine and alpine ecosystems are experiencing dramatic changes in response to the direct and indirect effects of climate change and land use practices (Parmesan 2006; Gottfried et al. 2012). Warming temperatures, decreasing snow pack, fire exclusion, and changes in grazing patterns all contribute to these changes. In addition to upward shifts in the elevation of local treeline (Parmesan 2006; Smith et al. 2009), changes in the spatial patterns of subalpine forests have been observed in many areas where conifers are encroaching into meadows and grasslands (Agee and Smith 1984; Rochefort et al. 1994; Klasner and Fagre 2002; Haugo et al. 2011). The subalpine ecotone, which forms a dynamic transitional zone between ... Read More

  • Convenience Stores: A Landscape Perspective
    • Abstract: When Imoved to Los Angeles a few years ago, I confronted numerous cultural practices different from what I had experienced growing up in the Midwest. None, however, were more maddening than the way people drove their cars in Southern California. Despite the obvious fact that racing toward a red light does nothing to change it to green, a large percentage of Los Angelenos seem eager to beat you in a race to stop first. It isn’t just young hot-rodders, either; an astonishing number of little old ladies drive this way. Jackrabbit starts and jarring stops are a cultural norm in L.A. At first I thought maybe it was an outgrowth of a diminished sense of community, or maybe an exaggerated sense of personal privilege that ... Read More

  • A Dialogic Approach to Alien Movies
    • Abstract: If a film features aliens, it is signaling to the viewers that it is fictional, that it is occurring in an imaginary geopolitical universe. The success of these films, however, hinges on their ability to tell compelling stories that comment on everyday understandings of group affiliation and geopolitics. This paper focuses on films that have aliens, because aliens provide a putatively blank slate for both filmmakers and moviegoers that in turn provides an ideal social text to examine the fluid ways in which viewers respond to films.Compelling scenes of good, evil, mysterious, and funny aliens are shown in theaters across the world. In this paper, aliens are situated as a stand-in for the human other, a way to ... Read More

  • Entropy-Based Weights for MultiCriteria Spatial Decision-Making
    • Abstract: Geospatial decision problems most often involve a set of multiple, conflicting, and incommensurate evaluation criteria. The set of criteria in these problems are utilized for evaluation, ranking, and selection of optimal location alternative(s). Within this context, GIS-based multicriteria decision analysis (GIS-MCDA) can be defined as a procedure that aggregates geospatial evaluation criteria and their relative importance into a final solution index map that can offer appropriate and useful information and give insight into the decision-making problem. The main rationale for integrating GIS and MCDA, as two distinct areas of research, is that they have unique capabilities that complement one another. Therefore, it ... Read More

The Guiana Shield region of South America is largely inhabited by thriving Indigenous communities, whose knowledge and skills are indispensable for effective conservation of the region and are a great asset to world culture.It is well known in human geography that Indigenous knowledges are often too simplistically associated with “tradition,” with the risk of crystallizing alleged “traditional identities” without taking into account their dynamic nature and the historical, socioeconomic, and political processes in which these develop (Bebbington 1993; Jackson and Warren 2005).

  • Recollections of a Mountaineering Sierran Geomorphologist
    • Abstract: My early December 2012 Christmas letter began with the following. “For the 12 months climbing, my efforts gave to me: 12 months of aches/pains, 11 body piercings, 10 crunched toes, 9 stretched tendons, 8 trashed fingers, 7 head bumps, 6 bruised shins, 5 gold rings (I wish!), 4 torn cartilages, 3 bloody noses, 2 blown rotator cuffs, and a smashed foot in a pear tree (really, on a 300-foot cliff above Donner Pass).” When I wrote this, little did I know that I had broken my back in a head-first fall back in 2005, at age sixty-two. Also, little did I know that in twelve months, I would break it again. Believe me, you don’t want a broken back.I’ve been climbing since 1960, and I realized early on that it is both ... Read More

  • Transformed by Antarctica
    • Abstract: Many faculty members of higher education institutions across the nation have asked me how we teach at Evergreen State College. We do teach world regional geography at Evergreen, and I offer this short article to demonstrate a system of learning. I also focus on one of the regions of the world that often is overlooked: the Polar Regions, especially Antarctica. Teaching world regional geography in a ten-week quarter is always a challenge. Inevitably student learning about the entire extent of Earth must be compressed to those areas to accommodate diverse populations, physical features, environmental histories, and challenges before us. A quick examination of world geography textbooks offers a measure of significance ... Read More

  • The Whithering of Geographers
    • Abstract: This foray into that persistent and deliberately archaic query of our discipline—Whither geography'—was prompted by a recent commentary, “Whither (or Wither') Geography'” (Finlayson 2015). A subsequent antipodean stimulus was the theme chosen by the Institute of Australian Geographers (IAG) 2016 conference: “Revisiting Edward Ackermann’s seminal paper, Where is the Research Frontier'—in the light of 50 years of geographical research.” While many geographers have considered the nature, scope, and direction of geography, the following commentary is concerned only with those geographical authors who used whither in their title. Frequent attempts to address that question extend over eight decades, so this overview is ... Read More

  • Pacific: Silicon Chips and Surfboards, Coral Reefs and Atom Bombs, Brutal
           Dictators, Fading Empires, and the Coming Collision of the World’s
           Superpowers by Simon Winchester (review)
    • Abstract: In Pacific, Simon Winchester crafts an image of the world’s oldest and largest ocean as a pelagic soothsayer and bellwether, a source of clues and portents about future trends in earth systems and human affairs. In Winchester’s framing, many of the planet’s most significant unfolding stories—global warming, ENSO, the rattling behavior of North Korea and China’s territorial expansion, among others—are Pacific stories. The frame is more than a clever authorial conceit and structuring device. As Winchester emphasizes throughout, the Pacific not only links the stories but plays an increasingly central role in the world they foreshadow. Thus, he writes, if the Mediterranean was in some sense the “inland sea” of the ... Read More

  • The Lost City of Z dir. by James Gray (review)
    • Abstract: The movie version of David Grann’s bestselling book, The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, has finally made its way into movie theaters. Called simply The Lost City of Z, the movie tells the true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett’s career as a military man and explorer. The film does not attempt to tell every detail of Fawcett’s life, omitting any reference to his careers as a naval engineer or artist.Following a chronological timeline beginning in 1905, in the opening scene we first encounter Fawcett as a young husband, father, and a major in the British Army stationed in Ireland. In a bit of foreshadowing of the massive conflict to come in the following decade, Archduke Franz ... Read More

    • Abstract: Being a parent of two school-age children when the original Pokémon craze began, I could not resist when Pokémon Go was released last summer, a nostalgic and exciting game that was overlain on a pre-existing geocache application. Needless to say, this geographer was intrigued!When the game came out, it was hilarious watching people amass at popular Pokémon spawn locations, racing back and forth to be rewarded with a coveted, rare Pokémon. The general population was using GIS applications and reading maps with little or no prior experience at all. Young children were orienting themselves to a known location, or a Pokéstop, and getting there without a thought. Children were going outside, riding bikes, running ... Read More

  • Desert Oracle (review)
    • Abstract: For many of us APCG folks, the desert holds a special place in our geographical hearts. While there is certainly much to be said and written in terms of arid lands research, there is always a mysterious and wondrous aspect to the desert that calls us to explore these regions and delve even deeper into their secrets. For some, it might be Coachella or the Desert Trip music festivals, or even Burning Man; it might be Joshua Tree or White Sands. For me, it was always the desert landscapes of Coconino County found in George Herriman’s Krazy Kat cartoon strip. One can always rely on a textbook to provide the academic knowledge of the desert. Sometimes, however, we need to go a little further to find the true nature of ... Read More

    • Abstract: But after the Beach Boys’ “Pet Sounds,” from 1966, and The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” from 1967, it became a kind of creative imperative, a way of eschewing the ephemerality of the single and establishing pop music as art.Billed as “Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds: The Final Performances,” this tour gives fans one last opportunity to experience the musical genius that is Pet Sounds and, if rumors are true, to see the great Brian Wilson give his final series of live concerts. There is no denying the high regard for Pet Sounds by music critics and music historians and by Beach Boy and Wilson fans; view any list of the ten greatest albums and, if not right at the top, Pet Sounds will be ...
