MSN Encarta Extractive Economics

Americans developed the land’s natural resources in many other ways as well. They used water from the nation’s vast river systems to irrigate arid land and to transport people and goods. They built harbors for ports along the coastlines in order to ship and receive goods from all over the world. They exploited the forests and the fisheries, building major industries providing goods for domestic consumption and for export. 


Industry developed early in the United States. During the first half of the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution spread from Europe and stimulated the rapid growth of industry in the Northeast. Raw materials were brought to the Northeast from other parts of the country by ship and by a rapidly expanding rail system. Industrial plants processed the raw material into finished products for export and for domestic consumption. 


From 1850 to 1920, industrial expansion continued and moved westward. Chicago, Illinois, became the leading meatpacking center of the United States. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, became synonymous with steel. Detroit, Michigan, emerged as the automobile capital of the world. Other large U.S. cities developed their own specialties. By the beginning of World War I (1914-1918), America had become the world’s greatest industrial giant. see United States (History). 


However, as Americans developed the land and its resources, they sometimes created environmental problems. Forests and natural grasslands began disappearing as early as colonial times (17th and 18th centuries), as settlers converted more and more wilderness into farmland. In the 20th century, urban sprawl and industrial expansion led to pollution of the air and water. A growing population, and its demands for a convenient lifestyle, generated tremendous amounts of pollution and waste. By the mid-1990s, Americans created 2.0 kg (4.3 lbs) of trash per person per day. Often the highest hill around a typical U.S. city consisted of the waste buried at the local sanitary landfill. See also Air Pollution; Water Pollution.


In the last 30 years of the 20th century, however, Americans have become more aware of environmental problems and have begun programs to reduce pollution and conserve natural areas. People also learned to recycle, to reuse resources, and to protect endangered species. See also Conservation.

Know Your Watershed Impact Zones

Web Services and the National Hydrography Dataset Plus

A variety of Web services that leverage the National Hydrography Dataset Plus (NHDPlus) and information linked to the underlying NHD are now available or planned for the near future. The NHDPlus surface water drainage network enables Web-based up/downstream query of water quality information, including water quality assessments, water quality impairments, and permitted dischargers. This presentation will describe a collection of such Web services that are being delivered by the USGS and the USEPA.

Military maps documenting overland railroad routes to western natural resource areas that enabled "manifest destiny" guided and influenced an evolving era characterized by North American inter-regional conflict and conquest (1821-2020).


Eastern empire-building attitudes strongly-influenced industrial age extractive economics as expanding immigrant populations challenged natural barriers to the limits of growth!
