    • Summer ecology and behavior of the grayling of McManus Creek, Alaska

      Vascotto, Gian L.; Morrow, James; Weeden, Judith S.; West, George C. (1970-05)
      A study of the summer ecology and behavior of the Arctic Grayling was undertaken on the summer population of McManus Creek, Alaska. An effort to determine the distribution and the patterns of the fish’s movements in the stream was made. The grayling spent the summer months in pools where they established feeding territories. Within each feeding territory a feeding range, where all feeding activities took place, was found. In each pool a hierarchial ordering based on a dominant subordinate relationship existed. This hierarchy was established and maintained by a series of displays. The grayling of McManus Creek were found to feed solely on the surface and at mid-depth. The food items consisted both of flying insects and aquatic insects, the latter making up the largest portion of their diet. It appeared that the fish relied primarily upon benthic drift for nutrition. Being visual feeders, the fish were unable to utilize the large numbers of organisms known to drift during periods of high and muddy water.
    • Pedestrian Safety Analysis using Computer Vision

      Champlin, Daniel; Hanson, Lane; Lowry, Michael (2024-06-18)
      The goal of this research project was to explore the capabilities of computer vision for pedestrian safety analysis. Computer vision, an AI application in image processing, tracks the movement of cars, bikes, and pedestrians, offering superior information about speed, trajectory, and count data for various transportation modes. The University of Idaho acquired two computer vision sensors from the startup Numina. This project funded the installation and one year of data access. In collaboration with the City of Moscow, we identified a test location, but the sensors failed to provide the necessary data. Consequently, we pivoted to the open-source computer vision package YOLOv8. Our research then focused on YOLOv8’s capabilities for pedestrian safety analysis. The first task tested detection accuracy, and the second compared different model sizes, or “brain sizes,” of YOLOv8, which range from smaller, faster models to larger, more accurate ones. Accuracy tests compared average detection confidence across various zones and times of day, revealing that cars in high daylight had the highest confidence levels, while objects closer to the camera and oriented perpendicularly were detected more accurately. In contrast, objects at skewed angles and farther distances had lower confidence levels. The model size comparison showed that larger models, despite requiring more time and storage, produced significantly higher-quality detections.
    • Flying the frontier: a case study comparison of newspaper coverage of early northern plane crashes

      Williams, Leanna Prax; Ehrlander, Mary F.; Cole, Terrence; Tordoff, Dirk (2019-12)
      From the early days of Alaskan aviation beginning in 1923, stories about Alaskan bush pilots leapt from newspaper pages, captivating readers and selling papers. These newspaper stories, along with magazine articles and other popular culture media accounts, portrayed pilots as pioneers, cowboys and brave adventurers, and referred to Alaska in terms heavily laden with American frontier imagery, a trend that persisted in Alaska but faded elsewhere. What did newspaper reports convey about the lives and deaths of these aviators and their relationships to Alaska and the frontier? How has the portrayal of these early Alaskan pilots in ways that perpetuated frontier mythology affected attitudes toward Alaska's aviation industry? This research employs case study comparisons to approach these questions, evaluating tone and language of early news coverage about Alaska aviation from its advent in 1923 until early 1948 and exploring the origins of the modern American media's portrayal of the Alaska aviation industry. I argue that these early bush pilots captivated the American public because they lived and worked at the intersection of two frontiers: Alaska as The Last Frontier, and at the dawn of the air-age, the sky as a new frontier.
    • Application of a Stakeholder-Centric Project Management Methodology to the Development of a Disaster Preparedness Plan for Turnagain Crossft Alaska

      Sparks, David Emory Jr (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2023-12-01)
      This research paper details the development of a comprehensive disaster preparedness plan for Turnagain CrossFit AK, showcasing a shift from the traditional top-down approach to a more inclusive, stakeholderfocused strategy. Recognizing the limitations of conventional disaster preparedness models, which often overlook the nuanced needs and insights of local communities, this study adopts a participatory approach, engaging directly with the people most affected by potential disasters. The methodology integrates a series of steps, beginning with a thorough literature review to establish a foundational understanding of best practices in disaster preparedness and risk management. The core of the study lies in its stakeholdercentric methodology, involving community members, experts, and local authorities in a collaborative effort to tailor the preparedness plan to the specific needs and resources of Turnagain CrossFit AK. Techniques such as risk assessments, interviews, surveys, simulation training exercises, and cost-benefit analysis were employed to gather comprehensive data and insights. This multifaceted approach ensured the identification and prioritization of local hazards, vulnerabilities, and mitigation strategies, leading to a culturally relevant and efficient preparedness plan. The outcome is a disaster preparedness plan that not only aligns with the unique characteristics of Turnagain CrossFit AK but also demonstrates the efficacy of engaging local stakeholders in the development process. This research contributes to the field of emergency management by illustrating the benefits of a bottom-up approach in creating practical, resilient , and community driven disaster preparedness strategies.
    • Application of Project Management Tools and Techniques to Planning and executing the Chugach Heritage Foundation Alumni Program Stand Up

      Ladd, Micah (University of Alaska Anchorage, 2023-12-01)
      This project seeks to establish an Alumni Program for the Chugach Heritage Foundation. Chugach Heritage Foundation is a nonprofit arm of Chugach Alaska Corporation, an Alaska Native Corporation established under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. Chugach Heritage Foundation provides scholarships and cultural education opportunities for eligible individuals. This project serves two significant purposes; the first is to allow program alums to remain engaged with the Chugach Heritage Foundation and to encourage giving back to the foundation. The second is to support CHF’s status as an operating foundation, which holds tax benefits CHF would greatly benefit from. Through this project, I intend to demonstrate mastery of several project management areas during the planning and execution of this project, including communication management, stakeholder management, and project risk management. These will be measured and reported on to demonstrate that I exceeded what is required of typical project completion. In addition to planning and executing this project, I will also produce a guide that contributes to the Project Management Body of Knowledge. This contribution will cover how to establish alum programs for scholarship administering nonprofits.
