Chukchi Sea Subsistence Monitoring
These studies provide long-term monitoring data to assess and mitigate potential direct and indirect (downstream) effects on offshore subsistence hunting and sharing network practices in the vicinity of the Chukchi Sea. Study results will identify whether subsistence hunting in the Chukchi Sea displays significant variation over time and whether such variation can be attributed to offshore oil and gas industrial activities, climate change, or other factors. Study results are used to identify conflicts pertaining to competing temporal and spatial uses.
This Program is composed of three individual projects which are also represented in Catalog: Study of Sharing Networks to Assess the Vulnerabilities of Local Communities to Oil and Gas Development Impacts in Arctic Alaska (AK-05-04a) COMIDA: Impact Monitoring for Offshore Subsistence Hunting (AK-08-04) Aggregate Effects Research and Environmental Mitigation Monitoring of Oil Industry Operations in the Vicinity of Nuiqsut (AK-08-09)
