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...

Retrospective Study of Walrus Foraging and Movement Patterns During a Major Ecosystem Shift in the Bering and Chukchi Seas

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - Recent work suggests that anthropogenic climate change has caused a shift from arctic to subarctic conditions in the Bering Sea, which has resulted in replacement of ice-dominated benthic ecosystems with pelagic-dominated ecosystems. This has occurred in areas that support the largest breeding colonies of Pacific walrus (Odobenus rosmarus divergens). Some have hypothesized that this northward...

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...

Polar Bear Population Monitoring

US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) - Polar bear population is tracked through aerial surveys, monitoring harvests by indigenous communities and incidental deaths caused by the oil and gas industry. Polar bear feeding and ecology are also being studied, and this program collaborates with Russian conservationists as well. Publications: Durner, G.M., J.P. Whiteman, H. J. Harlow, S.C. Amstrup, E.V. Regehr, and M. Ben-David. 2011....

Soviet illegal catches of sperm whales in the North Pacific: assessing the damage

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - In 1948, the USSR began a 30-year campaign of illegal whaling that is estimated to have resulted in at least 180,000 unreported catches worldwide. Although the true catch record for this period has been largely reconstructed for the Southern Hemisphere, major gaps remain in the North Pacific. In that ocean, the species hit hardest by the illegal whaling was the sperm whale. It is known that...

Little Diomede Hunters and Elders Ecological Knowledge, Management Strategies, and Usage of Walruses (Odobenus rosmarus) in Bering Strait

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - Pacific walruses have been a crucial subsistence resource for communities in the Bering Strait region since approximately 2500BP. Communities on Saint Lawrence Island, King Island, as well as Big and Little Diomede islands developed complex walrus hunting techniques and usages. Current hunting practices are the realization of traditions with significant temporal depth. Consequently, these...

The Distributed Biological Observatory (DBO)-A Change Detection Array in the Pacific Arctic Region

Clark University (CLARK) - The observational plan includes standard hydrographic and biological measurements along five transect lines located in the northern Bering and Chukchi Seas. These sampling locations are arrayed south-to-north and reflect a gradient of seasonal sea ice change and seawater warming. The investigators chose these 5 regions because they are zones of high biological productivity and biodiversity....

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...

Sentinels for Ecosystem Change: Long-term Biophysical Moorings on the Bering Sea Shelf

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - This project will maintain biophysical moorings at four sites from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013, as well as collect data along the 70-m isobath. The work will be done as part of a consortium between NOAA programs and NPRB. M2 has been maintained almost continuously since 1995, providing the longest near-continuous time series of physical, chemical and biological data on the Bering Sea shelf....

Sea Ice for Walrus Outlook (SIWO)

Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) - The Sea Ice for Walrus Outlook (SIWO), an activity of the SEARCH Sea Ice Outlook started in 2010, is a resource for Alaska Native subsistence hunters, coastal communities, and others interested in sea ice and walrus. The SIWO provides weekly reports from April through June with information on sea ice conditions relevant to walrus in the Northern Bering Sea and southern Chukchi Sea regions of...
