Seeking Common Ground among a multitude of viewpoints.
The Adirondack Journal of Environmental Studies
"Seeking Common Ground among A Multitude of Viewpoints"
The Adirondack Journal of Environmental Studies (AJES) exists to foster a dialogue about the broad range of issues that concern the Adirondacks and Northern Forest. AJES serves to bridge the gaps among academic disciplines and among researchers and practitioners devoted to understanding and promoting the development of sustainable communities, both human and wild. The journal purposefully avoids serving as a vehicle for any single or special point of view. To the contrary, in searching for common ground AJES welcomes variety and a broad spectrum of research and opinion from its contributors.
AJES VOLUME 21 NOW AVAILABLE!
Volume 21 of AJES is a snapshot in time of the ageless geology of the Adirondacks. The authors and editors have worked tirelessly to make it an important reference document. As such, we are expanding our normal distribution lists to make it available to as many people as possible and providing copies to all the public libraries in and around the Adirondack region. Geological study of the Adirondacks began in the 1830s with the forays of Ebenezer Emmons, under the aegis of New York State. Scientific research has continued unabated, and in recent years, great strides have been made in unraveling the complexities of the plate tectonic history, bedrock geology, glacial processes, and soil/water systems. Much of this research has been spurred by economic and environmental concerns, but in the main, the Adirondacks are studied because they are fundamentally interesting as a geological terrain set in a landscape of preserved, ‘forever wild’ ecosystems.
