The effects of climate warming on the landscape, fauna and ecology of the North Slope over the last 15,000 years.
During the last 15,000 years four significant climate warming events have occurred on the North Slope. Data regarding these events have been obtained from exposed geologic sections, lake-bottom sediments, and faunal remains. Analysis of this data is revealing causal factors, similarities between events, as well as potential applications to North Slope land management concerns.
