Abstract

 

Jones and Laughlin Steel Corporation, the fifth largest steel producer in the United States, has operations in thirty-two states, and a geographic distribution of plants that is representative of the entire national iron and steel industry. This remains true despite the areal shifts in plant location that have resulted from changes in the relative importance of certain major locative factors.

Abstract

 

The Noirthwesit Pacific fishing grounds, which lead the world, are of considerable significance to Japan and the Soviet Union. This area has long been the principal area of operation for Japanese salmon and crab fisheries. Furthermore, since World War II the Northwest Pacific has become increasingly important to the Soviet Union as Eastern waters currently account for a source of salmon and crabs. This is far more than thirty percent of the total Soviet catch.
