Climate monitoring at remote weather stations

US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) - Monitor several climate parameters, including air and soil temperature, wind speed and direction, precipitation, snow depth, etc. Arctic NWR currently has 4 USGS weather stations, 3 of which are on North Slope. Monitor permanent vegetation plots at 4 climate stations maintained by the USGS within the Refuge.

DOI on the Landscape - Avian Population Response to Ecological Change along the Arctic Coastal Plain

US Geological Survey (USGS) - The Arctic Coastal Plain (ACP) region of Alaska contains the vast majority of the nation's arctic tundra ecosystems that exist for the most part in a pristine, but ecologically sensitive state. Some of the most common indicators of environmental change are changes in land form, which can affect the biophysical patterns and processes within both hydrologic and terrestrial systems. Arctic...

Alaska Quaternary Climate History

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Loess and eolian sand are really the most important surficial deposits in Alaska These deposits record past periods of rapid dust or sand deposition under cold, dry, windy conditions. If sources of loess and sand can be inferred, they also record past wind directions. Buried soils found within eolian deposits record past periods of landscape stability. Morphology and chemical properties of...

The effects of climate warming on the landscape, fauna and ecology of the North Slope over the last 15,000 years.

US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) - 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.

Nearshore Beaufort Sea Meteorological Monitoring and Data Synthesis Project OCS Study MMS 2007-011

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - This report summarizes meteorological data collected from five boem, formerly (Minerals Management Service) stations, along with existing data from supplemental stations along the Beaufort Sea coast. Data were collected for the BOEM stations from January 2001 through September 2006 spanning a 100 km stretch of the Beaufort Sea coast centered on Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. The BOEM meteorological...

Bering-Aleutian salmon international survey (BASIS): Chukchi Sea Survey

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - Study the effects of climate change (loss of sea ice) on the oceanography and pelagic/benthic fish communities. No survey planned in 2010; hopes for survey in 2011

Evaluation of the Use of Hindcast Model Data for OSRA in a Period of Rapidly Changing Conditions (AK-10-07)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The pace at which conditions are changing and sea ice is being lost in the Arctic raises several questions, including: How might the ocean circulation be changing? Do the hindcasts continue to adequately represent current patterns in the region? Does BOEM need to incorporate a 20-40 year forecast-modeling mode? Oceanic current patterns in the Arctic, especially in nearshore regions, are...

Development of Baseline Food Web Models for the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - Create a baseline food web model for the Chukchi ecosystem, and review food web literature on the Beaufort ecosystem, including data on production, benthos, fish, and upper trophic levels (mammals and birds), for future ecosystem-based management efforts and for predicting impacts of disturbances or climate variability on ecosystem structure and function.
