National Geographic - March 1990, Vol. 177, No. 3
Double Map Supplement: Soviet Union (A double supplement outlines the ethnic diversity of the Soviet Union and highlights the geography, people, and events that have shaped its history.)
Siberia: In from the Cold (Like a warming wind, glasnost, openness, sweeps across the Soviet Union’s vast outback, and Siberians in unprecedented numbers speak out against the misuse of their rich storehouse of natural resources. From journalists to reindeer herders to local officials, they seek more control over the environment and destiny of this frontier, an area slightly larger than the United States. Mike Edwards and photographer Steve Raymer report.)
Last Days of the Gulag? (As the Soviets dismantle their notorious “correctional” labor camps and open their prison system to greater scrutiny by the world, French writer Jean-Pierre Vaudon and photographer Pierre Perrin visit Perm 35, a camp in the Ural Mountains.)
The Gulag Remembered (From 1928 to 1953 Joseph Stalin sent millions to Soviet labor camps, where millions perished. Mike Edwards describes the brutal system, known by its Russian acronym gulag, and speaks to survivors.)
The Golden Hoard of Bactria (After a decade of excavating an Afghan hillsides, Soviet archaeologist Viktor Ivanovich Sarianidi in 1978 unearthed a trove of gold jewelry and other artifacts buried in 2,000-year-old graves; here he presents a selection of these masterpieces. With photographs by Leonid Bogdanov and Vladimir Terebenin.)
America’s Ancient Skywatchers (Strange drawings on a desert floor, oddly aligned stone columns, a peculiar trough carved beneath a small window… what do they mean? John B. Carison, a specialist who weds archaeology to astronomy, looks to the cosmos for answers to some age-old puzzles. Photographs by Bob Sacha.)
The Enigma of Time (While most of us are obsessed with keeping track of it, scholars debate what time actually is. John Boslough and photographer Bruce Dale tell the story of a concept that we think we understand until we try to define it.)
Soviet Union; Siberia; the gulags; bactrian gold hoard; ancient astronomers; time.

National Geographic - February 1990, Vol. 177, No. 2
Between Monterey Tides (Monterey Bay, a spectacular crescent in the central California coast, conceals a submarine chasm as vast as the Grand Canyon. Here an upwelling of cool, nutrient-rich water sustains great kelp forests and marine creatures from anemones to sea otters. Rick Gore joins biologists who seek to unlock the mysteries of this intricate ecosystem. Photographs by Jonathan Blair, David Doubilet, and Emory Kristof.)
Athapaskans Along The Yukon (Their ancestors crossed the Bering land bridge to occupy Alaska’s interior: fishing, trapping, and hunting game there for thousands of years. Now Athapaskans find their traditional life-style increasingly challenged by the snowmobile, the oil rig, and the commercial fishery, as Brad Reynolds and photographer Don Doll report.)
The Aral: A Soviet Sea Lies Dying (In 30 years the Aral Sea has lost 40 percent of its surface area and 66 percent of its volume, primarily to the demands of irrigation. William S. Ellis and photographer David Turnley assess an environmental tragedy brought on by economic development in the U.S.S.R.)
Common Ground, Different Dreams: The US-Canada Border (Geography has made us neighbors; history has made us friends, said President John F. Kennedy. Now the U.S. Canada Free Trade Agreement has made both nations pay more attention across the world’s longest undefended border. Priit J. Vesilind and photographer Sarah Leen plumb the complex affections and misunderstandings between the neighbors.)
Chestnuts: Back From the Brink (Victim of blight, the American chestnut tree has all but vanished from the eastern forests of the United States since 1900. M. Ford Cochran and photographer Gary Braasch chronicle the efforts to save the trees that remain and the breed new resistant strains.)
Monterey Bay of California; Athapaskans of the Yukon; the Aral Sea of the Soviet Union; the U.S. - Canada border; American chestnuts.

National Geographic - January 1990, Vol. 177, No. 1
Double Map Supplement: Atlantic and Artic Ocean Floors (The first of a new map series portrays in vivid three-dimensional paintings the latest knowledge from decades of seafloor exploration.)
Alaska’s Big Spill: Can the Wilderness Heal? (When the supertanker EXxon Valdez ran aground last March 24, spewing 11 million gallons of crude oil into Prince William Sound, some feared that the pristine waters would never recover. Bryan Hodgson assesses the worst tanker spill in U.S. history and a six-month, billion-dollar cleanup effort. Photographs by Natalie Fobes.)
New Evidence Places Peary at the Pole (Eighty years after Robert E. Peary reported he had reached the North Pole, his claim was still disputed. To settle the controversy, the National Geographic Society commissioned the Navigation Foundation to make a comprehensive study of the expedition’s documents, photographs, and navigation techniques. Foundation president Rear Adm. Thomas D. Davies presents compelling evidence that Peary did, in fact, reach the Pole.)
The Kremlin and Its Treasures (Jon Thompson and photographer Cary Wolinsky win entry to once closed corridors, tracing the history of the Kremlin from a 12th century fort to palatial center of Soviet government and ceremony. With a photographic portfolio (pages 82-92) of the dazzling art and trappings of tsarist Russia housed in the Kremlin.)
Nest Gatherers of Tiger Cave (In dark cares of Thailand, generations of men have risked their lives to obtain a prized commodity: edible bird’s nests, essential ingredient of a traditional Chinese soup. Eric Valli and Diane Summers photograph the Thai in their precarious pursuit.)
Dance of the Electronic Bee (Recently developed, a tiny robot honeybee programmed by computer communicates to living bees information about distant sources of nectar. The mechanical marvel can even deliver a sample of sugar water to prove its point. Photographs and text by Mark W. Moffett.)
Alaska oil spill; Peary's north pole trek; treasures of the Kremlin in Moscow; edible bird's nests; robot honeybees.
