The Adventurer's Son
NATIONAL BESTSELLER “A brave and marvelous book. A page-turner that will rip your heart out.” —Jon Krakauer "Gripping." —New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice) * "Beautiful." —Washington Post * "Destined to become an adventure classic." —Anchorage Daily News In the tradition of Into the Wild comes an instant classic of outdoor literature, a riveting work of uncommon depth: The Adventurer’s Son is Roman Dial’s extraordinary account of his two-year quest to unravel the mystery of his son’s dissapearance in the jungles of Costa Rica. In the predawn hours of July 10, 2014, the twenty-seven-year-old son of preeminent Alaskan scientist and National Geographic Explorer Roman Dial, walked alone into Corcovado National Park, an untracked rainforest along Costa Rica’s remote Pacific Coast that shelters miners, poachers, and drug smugglers. He carried a light backpack and machete. Before he left, Cody Roman Dial emailed his father: “I am not sure how long it will take me, but I’m planning on doing 4 days in the jungle and a day to walk out. I’ll be bounded by a trail to the west and the coast everywhere else, so it should be difficult to get lost forever.” They were the last words Dial received from his son. As soon as he realized Cody Roman’s return date had passed, Dial set off for Costa Rica. As he trekked through the dense jungle, interviewing locals and searching for clues—the authorities suspected murder—the desperate father was forced to confront the deepest questions about himself and his own role in the events. Roman had raised his son to be fearless, to be at home in earth’s wildest places, travelling together through rugged Alaska to remote Borneo and Bhutan. Was he responsible for his son’s fate? Or, as he hoped, was Cody Roman safe and using his wilderness skills on a solo adventure from which he would emerge at any moment? Part detective story set in the most beautiful yet dangerous reaches of the planet, The Adventurer’s Son emerges as a far deeper tale of discovery—a journey to understand the truth about those we love the most. The Adventurer’s Son includes fifty black-and-white photographs.

Ecological, Climatic, and Land Cover Trends on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska: 1950-2012
Remote sensing and GIS were used to detect, measure, and monitor land cover changes for natural resources management purposes at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, which was formed by the merger in 2010 of Elmendorf Air Force Base and Fort Richardson. The classification of vegetation in 2012 was validated through hundreds of site visits in 2013 and 2014. The report describes changes after various levels of intensity of human activity, climate changes, and expansion of spruce forest.

Microtine Rodent and Shrew Densities on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, 2013: Spatial Modeling Near Elmendorf Airfield and Malamute Drop Zone
In September 2013 the authors sampled 39 sites for microtine rodents (voles) and shrews at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (in Alaska), the Malamute Drop Zone, and remote base locations, and used the results to create a spatial model of their densities around the airfield and drop zone. Sites were selected to estimate small mammal abundance around airfields, since small mammals attract raptors, whose presence threatens military airflights and human safety. Population estimates in this 2013 study were corrected in the 2014 companion study.

Microtine Rodent and Shrew Densities on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, 2014: Spatial Modeling Near Bryant Airfield and Elmendorf Airfield
In 2013 and 2014 the authors sampled 71 sites for microtine rodents and shrews at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, and used the results to create a spatial model of their densities around two airfields and Malamute Drop Zone for each year. Sites were selected to estimate small mammal abundance around airfields, since small mammals attract raptors, whose presence threatens military airflights and human safety. This document reports on the second year of population monitoring and spatial monitoring and corrects estimates in the 2013 companion study. In 2014 voles and shrews were trapped at 32 sites between July 30 and October 10.

Long-term Vegetation Monitoring on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska 2013
Over the summer of 2013 the authors conducted ecological surveys on twelve long-term vegetation monitoring plots as the beginning of a multi-year effort to determine current ecological health and a baseline for future comparisons. Standardized protocols had been developed specifically for ecological monitoring at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
