Arctic 2020: Building a Sustained Observing System

Jeremy Mathis - Director, NOAA Arctic Research Program (ARP)

With critical past, and potential future environmental changes affecting Alaska and the Arctic Region, the United States needs to rapidly expand long-term observing of the ice and marine environment across the Arctic.

Arctic Science Summit Week/Arctic Observing Summit 2016

Hajo Eicken (UAF), Peter Schlosser (Columbia University)

With critical past, and potential future environmental changes affecting Alaska and the Arctic Region, the United States needs to rapidly expand long-term observing of the ice and marine environment across the Arctic.

Assessing the Vulnerability of Alaska Villages

Bill Schnabel, University of Alaska Fairbanks

The presentation will focus primarily upon consideration of the threats imposed by permafrost thaw, as that is the main focus of the UAF/CRREL component of the project.

Bering Strait Shipping: Sea Ice, Economics, and Governance

Henry Huntington, Pew Charitable Trusts

Commercial vessel traffic through the Bering Strait is expected to increase. Henry Huntington will explore the role of reduced sea ice, the economics of shipping, & the potential for effective governance of maritime activity in the area.

BioMap Alaska: Citizen Science for Alaska's Oceans

Maribeth S. Murray, International Arctic Research Center; Howard Ferren, Alaska SeaLife Center; and Philip Loring, ACCAP

Climate Change Adaptation for an At Risk Community – Shaktoolik Alaska

Terry Johnson, Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program

U of Alaska Sea Grant agent Terry Johnson & consultant Glenn Gray worked with the community over a two-year period to develop an adaptation plan. Johnson explains how the plan was developed & how reality differs from theory in climate adaptation planning.

Climate Change Scenarios for Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska

Anna Springsteen, University of Alaska and The Wilderness Society; Dr. Wendy Loya, The Wilderness Society

Join us to learn more about projected changes in temperature and precipitation and the resulting possible impacts on growing season, fire regimes, permafrost stability, and river and lake hydrology.

Climate Change and Boreal Forest Fires: What does the future hold?

Mike Flannigan, University of Alberta

A warmer world means a longer fire season, more lightning activity and drier fuels. An enhanced fire danger rating systems that accurately predict the spatial and temporal variability in fire danger can help us adapt to a warmer world.

Climate Change and Tourism in Alaska

John Walsh, University of Alaska

Join us to learn about trends in the season length and frequency of weather conducive to sight seeing and how this can be applied in other tourist activities and locations in Alaska.

Climate Change in Alaska: Impacts on the Entomofauna

Derek SIkes, University of Alaska Museum

The University of Alaska Museum Insect Collection is a biorepository for vouchers from varied projects throughout Alaska. A number of examples of possible and potential climate change impacts on the terrestrial invertebrates of Alaska will be presented.
