Synthesis of Arctic Research

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - Our goal is to increase scientific understanding of the relationships among oceanographic conditions, benthic organisms, lower trophic prey species (forage fish and zooplankton), seabirds, and marine mammal distribution and behavior in the Pacific Arctic. The SOAR project is supported by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), and will assist in their evaluation of oil and gas development...

Consequences of long-distance swimming and travel over deep-water pack ice for a female polar bear during a year of extreme sea ice retreat

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) prefer to live on Arctic sea ice but may swim between ice floes or between sea ice and land. Although anecdotal observations suggest that polar bears are capable of swimming long distances, no data have been available to describe in detail long distance swimming events or the physiological and reproductive consequences of such behavior. Between an initial capture...

Benthic lower trophic level food webs in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas – baselines and relevance of sea ice algal production

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - This project seeks to investigate NPRB’s Arctic Focus Section Priority: Climate change effects on Arctic lower trophic food webs. Warming trends in the Arctic and increasing loss of sea ice and its associated primary production are thought to have profound effects on the energy flow on Arctic shelves. Based on information from other recent projects, we plan to fill specific gaps in our existing...

Edge of the Arctic Shelf

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) - SBI is a multi-year, multi-disciplinary program sponsored jointly by the National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs and the High-latitude branch of the Office of Naval Research. The overall goal is to understand how the Arctic shelves communicate with the interior basin from a coupled physical--biogeochemical standpoint. The premise is that this system is in a delicate balance that...

Bowhead Whale Distribution and Feeding Near Barrow, Alaska, in Late Summer 2005-6

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - Aerial surveys for bowhead whales were conducted in conjunction with oceanographic sampling near Barrow, Alaska, in late summer of 2005 and 2006. In 2005, 145 whales were seen, mostly in two distinct aggregations: one (ca. 40 whales) in deep water in Barrow Canyon and the other (ca. 70 whales) in very shallow (< 10 m) water just seaward of the barrier islands. Feeding behaviours observed in the...

Terrestrial and marine trophic pathways support young-of-year growth in a nearshore Arctic fish

US Geological Survey (USGS) - River discharge supplies nearshore communities with a terrestrial carbon source that is often reflected in invertebrate and fish consumers. Recent studies in the Beaufort Sea have documented widespread terrestrial carbon use among invertebrates, but only limited use among nearshore fish consumers. Here, we examine the carbon source and diet of rapidly growing young-of-year Arctic cisco...

Data Rescue: Burton Island – 1950s Historical Chukchi & Beaufort Sea zooplankton communities

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - This project will rescue zooplankton data collected in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas plus the adjoining Canada Basin between 1949 and 1958. A major challenge in climate-related studies is the lack of historical data against which to assess biological response to changes in the physical environment. The samples to be targeted are currently housed at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and...

Survival and breeding of polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea in relation to sea ice

US Geological Survey (USGS) - 1. Observed and predicted declines in Arctic sea ice have raised concerns about marine mammals. In May 2008, the US Fish and Wildlife Service listed polar bears (Ursus maritimus) – one of the most ice-dependent marine mammals – as threatened under the US Endangered Species Act. 2. We evaluated the effects of sea ice conditions on vital rates (survival and breeding probabilities) for polar...

Arctic Cod (Boreogadus saida) population structure and connectivity as examined with molecular genetics.

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - Because of its abundance, wide distribution and foundational ecosystem role, Arctic Cod (Boreogadus saida) is arguably the most important fish found in Arctic waters. This small gadoid fish which at times can be locally very abundant, is found as far south as Norton Sound in the Pacific and the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the Atlantic. In spite of the ecological importance and a possibility of...

Physical Oceanography of Alaska's Beaufort Sea

Physical%20oceanography Institute of Marine Science UAF (IMS) - The Alaskan Beaufort Sea continental shelf spans approximately 600 km along-shore and 80 km in the cross-shore direction. Circulation patterns of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas are schematically described in our transport pathway cartoon. The Beaufort shelf circulation is strongly influenced by ice, wind, fresh water (river discharge and ice melt) and air-sea heat fluxes. Tidal currents are...

Changes in the climate of the Alaskan North Slope and the ice concentration of the adjacent Beaufort Sea

Alaska Climate Research Center (ACRC) - A reliable data set of Arctic sea ice concentration based on satellite observations exists since 1972. Over this time period of 36 years western arctic temperatures have increased; the temperature rise varies significantly from one season to another and over multi-year time scales. In contrast to most of Alaska, however, on the North Slope the warming continued after 1976, when a circulation...

Extending marine mammal acoustic tracking ranges in the Beaufort Sea using a vertical array

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - The ability to localize marine mammal sounds is a key step in establishing population density estimations and evaluating subtle responses to anthropogenic activities. While numerous passive acoustic systems in the Arctic can detect marine mammal sounds, only a few systems localize biologic sounds, and require multiple deployments of widely separated instruments; a cumbersome, expensive process...
