 ABC News: Report: Northwest Risks Mad Cow Exposure   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
WASHINGTON May 6, 2005 — There is still a risk, though slight, of mad cow disease in the United States, and it is greatest in the three Northwestern states bordering Canada, according to Agriculture Department investigators.
The investigators, after tracing the history of the four cows with the disease in North America, said the U.S. has minimized the risk by banning cattle remains in feed, the primary way mad cow disease is believed to spread.
In its report, the team said the northwestern United States, particularly Washington, Idaho and Montana, could be considered at higher risk of exposure to BSE because it imported a substantial amount of cattle from western Canada along with a small amount of high-risk meat and bone meal.

 Unasylva - Vol. 1, No. 3 - Forestry in the Northwestern United States of America
In the United States itself, criticism has been voiced against this policy because it involves a risk of giving to big industry a kind of monopoly over large portions of the publicly owned forests.
Because many problems of the northwestern forests are similar to those which arise in tropical forests - a similarity which has already been pointed out - a study of the problems of the former ought to be helpful in planning the development of the latter.
In a few decades the population of that part of the United States has increased enormously and this development is continuing, making not only possible but necessary the transition from an extensive to an intensive silviculture, similar in aims if not in methods to European silviculture.

Oregon Trail, overland pioneer route to the northwestern United States.

As early as 1742, part of the trail in Wyoming had been blazed by the French Canadian explorer Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, Sieur de La VĂ©rendrye; the Lewis and Clark Expedition, between 1804 and 1806, made more of it known.

 Atmospheric, climatic and ecological controls on extreme wildfire years in the northwestern United States
Consequently, a better understanding of the factors that contribute to severe, extensive fires is critical for the integration of fire as an ecological process into managed landscapes.
The goals of this study are to determine if underlying patterns exist in annual area burned in the northwestern United States, and to determine the extent to which these patterns are associated with mid-tropospheric circulation anomalies and variability in antecedent temperature, precipitation, and drought.
This approach is distinct from most previous studies in two respects: (1) we do not treat the area west of the Rocky Mountains as a single coherent unit; and (2) we address large fire seasons, rather than individual large fires.

Sr, Nd, and Pb isotopic characteristics are decoupled from bulk chemistry, and reflect time-dependent variations in contributions from different lithospheric and sublithospheric mantle reservoirs.

We present equilibrium-line altitude (ELA) data for late-Pleistocene glaciers in eastern Oregon, central and northern Idaho, and western Montana, U.S.A. Over 500 cirque to small valley glaciers were reconstructed where moraines and other evidence for ice margins could be confidently interpreted on digital topographic maps.
An associated increase in snowfall may have allowed more precipitation-sensitive mountain glaciers to remain near their maxima or expand during the post-LGM period, before the dramatic warming into the early Holocene.
Similar positions and topography of continental ice sheets during buildup prior to the LGM might also promote glacial advances in mountain ranges of the interior northwestern U.S. by allowing strong westerly flow.
