Alaskan Native Social Integration and Academic Achievement

Description: The variables communication skills, state anxiety, communication apprehension, and level of integration are studied in relation to the assimilation of Alaskan Natives into a western-culture university. Specifically, the differences in communication skills between the two cultures and their effects on course grades are addressed. Results of the statistical analyses (ANOVA, MANOVA, discriminant function analysis, multiple regression) were not significant, most likely due to the small Alaskan Native sample size. The most significant relationship appeared between situational communication apprehension and the ethnicity of the interaction partner. Other results were directional, indicating that variables may be related to assimilation of Native students into a western university environment. Further research and replication is warranted, using an adequate sample of Alaskan Natives.

Sediment Transport in the Tanana River near Fairbanks, Alaska, 1982

Description: From abstract: Suspended-sediment and bedload-transport rates for the Tanana River near Fairbanks can be related to water discharge and annual sediment loads can be computed using these relations. For a site at Fairbanks the annual loads in 1982 were 26.1 million tons of suspended sediment and 227,000 metric tons of bedload. Data collected at five other sites within a 40-kilometer reach of the river indicate very similar suspended-sediment-transport relations but bedload-transport relations varied from site to site. For all sites bedload is on the order of 1 percent of suspended-sediment load.
