Alaskan stakeholderdefined research needs in the context of climate change

Publication Date: 
January 2015

Corrine Noel Knapp & Sarah F. Trainor (2015): Alaskan stakeholderdefined research needs in the context of climate change, Polar Geography, 

 

This paper reviews and codes 63 stakeholder-generated documents that address climate change research needs in Alaska in order to synthesize common research needs and assess gaps in needs assessment. We find that research needs related to infrastructure, economics, hazards and safety, and terrestrial ecosystem impacts are most frequently mentioned.
