Social Network Analysis of Climate Science and Service Organizations in Alaska

Project Overview

Dates: September 2012—December 2016


Primary Scientists: 

Network ties across the climate science-practice interface in Alaska. (Kettle et al. 2017)

The landscape of climate science and service organizations and entities in Alaska has expanded rapidly over the past three years and continues to dynamically evolve. This social network analysis will map the relationships, communication channels and information exchange between federal, state, tribal, industry and non-profit entities engaged in climate science and services in Alaska in order to provide an informed context for identifying and planning future ACCAP research and outreach. A detailed, nested analysis of the networks of science and stakeholders specific to the DOI Alaska Climate Science Center (CSC) and FWS Landscape Conservation Cooperatives in Alaska will inform Alaska CSC activities and planning.
