 Chapter 2: Our People, Our Resources
According to historical and ethnographic studies, the density of hunter-gatherer populations has ranged from an estimated 1.15 inhabitants per square kilometer for the Amerinds of pre-conquest western North America, to 0.15 inhabitants per square kilometer registered in the 1960s among the Kung Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert of Botswana in southern Africa.
In 1977, Egypt had an overall density of 39 persons per square kilometer of its total land area; but due to the size of its deserts, this was actually about 1,276 persons per square kilometer of arable land.
Population densities are on the order of 15-25 persons per square kilometer, rainfall is in excess of 1,100mm, the vegetation is less degraded and soils are of higher quality.

 Cornell News: Square Kilometer Array meeting
The global astronomy community has dubbed the new telescope the Square Kilometer Array, or SKA, and it hopes that if funding and technical problems can be overcome, the massive instrument will be focusing its beams on the distant universe within a decade or so.
Although the telescope's span would be 1,000 kilometers (620 miles), its actual collecting area for radio beams would be only about a square kilometer, or about a half square mile.
The antennas would form a type of telescope called an interferometer, in which radio signals from distant objects in the universe are captured by separate antennas and brought together at a central processor.

 WorldChanging: Tools, Models and Ideas for Building a Bright Green Future: The $1 Million A Square Kilometer Solution
January 25, 2006 12:20 PM Talk about a real estate bubble: A new report from the United Nations Environment Program estimates that a square kilometer of mangrove or coral reef can be worth over $1 million per square kilometer per year for the economies of tropical nations.
Reefs are worth over $1 million per square kilometer per year in parts of Southeast Asia, where reef-based fisheries generate about $4.46 million in income annually.
Spending that $800-odd dollars/sq km/yr to preserve a square kilometer of mangrove or reef can add up to a lot of erosion mitigation.

 Square Kilometer Array Gets Study Fund Topup
The telescope, the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), would cost in the area of $1 billion and would be among the largest scientific instruments ever assembled.
The challenge, he observes, is to design an antenna and the receiver system that will go with it, plus all of the necessary digital electronics, that would keep the cost of the SKA at $1 billion, an extremely low cost by current radio telescope standards.
The NSF funding, he says, will be used to investigate such a design, with some of the work being carried out at Cornell by Cordes and by German Cortes-Medellin, a senior research associate with the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC) at Cornell, which manages the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico for the NSF.

 [astro-ph/0409312] Probing the Dark Ages with the Square Kilometer Array
The epoch of reionization (EoR) sets a fundamental benchmark in cosmic structure formation, corresponding to the formation of the first luminous objects that act to ionize the neutral intergalactic medium (IGM).
The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) will provide critical insight into the EoR in a number of ways.
First, the ability of the SKA to image the neutral IGM in 21cm emission is a truly unique probe of the process of reionization, and is recognized as the next necessary and fundamental step in our study of the evolution of large scale structure and cosmic reionization.

In extragalactic astronomy, it will observe unobscured, normal and active galaxies, star formation and mergers, large scale structure and gravitational lenses throughout the universe.
In addition, the importance of refining its goals and design criteria in a dialog with organizations making complementary plans throughout the electromagnetic spectrum will be emphasized.

 ASTRON - About Astron
Astronomers and engineers our out to build the world’s biggest telescope, called the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), capable of peering deep into space at such things as gamma-ray bursts, extrasolar planets, evolving galaxies, dark matter and possibly even back to the Big Bang, where it all began.
The SKA project will create a huge radio telescope – in fact, hundreds of small collection stations forming one ‘big picture’ – covering the agreed frequencies of between 0.1 and 25 GHz.
