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....

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...

Fisheries Assessment in the Northeast Chukchi Sea

Institute of Marine Science UAF (IMS) - The primary object of the fish trawl assessment program is to estimate the relative abundance (numbers) and biomass (weight), species composition, and biological information on benthic and pelagic marine fish and invertebrate communities within the study areas. Bottom and pelagic trawl nets are deployed at each station and towed for approximately 5 to 15 minutes at an approximate speed of 2 to...

Dispersal Patterns and Summer Ocean Distribution of Adult Dolly Varden from the Wulik River, Alaska, Evaluated Using Satellite Telemetry (AK-08-12)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - This study addresses an important subsistence fish that is a key resource for residents of northwestern Alaska. It will provide important information about the distribution of Dolly Varden in the Chukchi Sea. BOEM analysts and decision makers will use this information in NEPA analysis and documentation for Lease Sales, EPs and DPPs. This study will tag 20 large Dolly Varden in the Wulik...

Benthic Ecology of the Northeast Chukchi Sea

Institute of Marine Science UAF (IMS) - Primary production reaching the sea floor is consumed by benthic organisms (animals living in or closely associated with sediments) allowing these communities to flourish in the Chukchi Sea. Prior work in the Chukchi Sea has been broadly focused and smaller-scale information is needed. Thus, invertebrate organisms dwelling in sediments (macrofauna including marine worms, clams, snails, and...

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...

Pacific Walrus Population Monitoring

US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey and Russian scientists from GiproRybFlot and ChukotTINRO, conducted a range-wide survey of the Pacific walrus population in March and April of 2006. The primary goal of the survey was to estimate the size of the Pacific walrus population across its spring range, the ice-covered continental shelf of the Bering...

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...

Oceanographic Assessment of Plankton Communities in the Northeast Chukchi Sea

Institute of Marine Science UAF (IMS) - The primary objective of the planktonic communities program is to describe spatial, seasonal and interannual characteristics of the plankton (phytoplankton and zooplankton) communities within the study areas. Phytoplankton, along with algae that grow attached to sea ice, are the conduit of the sun´s energy into organic "food” at the base of the food chain in the Chukchi Sea. Phytoplankton are...
