Description: A fishing boat travels under the Northern Lights. Also know as the Aurora Borealis, these lights are
best viewed in the cold dark winter months in Alaska. The beautiful blaze of the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis,
begins when energetic electrically charged particles accelerate along the magnetic field lines into the upper
atmosphere, where they collide with gas atoms, causing the atoms to give off light. The air lights up rather like what
happens in a fluorescent light tube. The colors reflect gases, the most usual yellow-green color coming from oxygen.
Red coloring is also due to oxygen with a contribution from nitrogen and violet is due to nitrogen. The charged
particles originate from the sun, and it is the “weather” conditions on the sun that decide whether or not we will see
Alaska leads the states in the annual value of fish caught by the commercial fishing industry. The state has a yearly
fish catch valued at about $1 billion. Fishermen in the industry catch cod, flounder, halibut, pollock, rockfish, sablefish,
salmon, and smelt. Dungeness crab, king crab, scallops, sea urchins, shrimp, and snow crab are also harvested, as
are herring eggs. Kodiak and Unalaska/Dutch Harbor are the chief fishing ports.
Alaska’s Inside Passage includes more than 1,000 islands as well as a rainforest. The 16.8-million-acre Tongass
National Forest is the largest forest managed by the U.S. Park Service.
