Errata:

1) The photograph on page 57 shows a house that collapsed in the 1964 Great Alaskan Earthquake, not one that had collapsed because of permafrost melt (as mistakenly stated in the caption) and is taken from the Seward Highway, and is not from 'north of Fairbanks' as stated in the caption.

Note the same house is visible here: http://jschumacher.typepad.com/joe/2005/08/earthquake_dama.html.

The mistake was pointed out by "juneau_girl" and "northernexposure"

2) The caption to the photograph on p170 of computer punch cards, mentions the Amdahl V/6 super-computer that was used at GISS in the 1970s, not 1960s as stated. The computer used from 1967 to 1975 was an IBM 360 model 95, then the fastest computer in the world. (H/T to Rod Scott).
