BLM-ALASKA TECHNICAL REPORTS


Technical Reports issued by BLM-Alaska present results of research, studies, investigations, literature searches, testing, or similar endeavors on a variety of scientific and technical subjects. The results presented are final, or are a summation and analysis of data at an intermediate point in a long-term research project, and have received objective review by peers in the author’s field.

The following list summarizes Technical Reports published by the Bureau of Land Management in Alaska. Some reports are available as downloads below, while most are available in hard copy format at major libraries in Alaska. BLM will provide Individual copies while supplies last.

Pending reports are reports in progress and are not yet published.  Some pending reports will not be completed or available.  Not available reports are usually large earth cover reports that did not get published in quantity and are not in a digital format.  Reports more than 10 years old may be out-of-print.
