[8] The observation site was in a semiarid region characterized by warm, dry summers [Bereneva, ].Annual precipitation for the 2 years from July to June was mm, 79% of which fell in the warm season (May to September). However, precipitation events were rarer in August than in by: Table shows the population of Valdez and the State of Alaska at year intervals between and , and year intervals from to Between and the population of Valdez changed very little ( in to 60 years later), while Alaska as a whole grew by two and a half times (f to ,).
