Seabirds as indicators of forage fish stocks and marine ecosystems in Alaska

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - The distribution and abundance of small, schooling forage fish (e.g., sandlance, capelin) in Alaska is known from small-scale directed studies, but mostly inferred from incidental catches in large-scale trawl surveys that were not designed (by gear or location) to sample forage species. In contrast, seabirds are conspicuous, highly mobile, samplers of forage fish that go to great distances...

Pacific Marine Arctic Regional Synthesis (PacMARS)

North Pacific Marine Research Institute (NPMRI) - The Pacific Marine Arctic Regional Synthesis (PacMARS) is a research synthesis effort underwritten by the North Pacific Marine Research Institute to assemble by mid-year 2013 up-to-date written documentation that contributes to understanding the Pacific-influenced coastal shelf ecosystem of the Arctic Ocean. Our study area extends from Saint Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea through Bering...

Chukchi Acoustics, Oceanography, and Zooplankton Study (CHAOZ)

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - Research focus: 1. examine the changing ecosystem of the Chukchi Sea through the use of biophysical moorings, shipboard observations and climate numerical models, and 2. link these data to the distribution and behavior of cetaceans to provide an integrated look at how changing regional and local conditions are affecting protected species. Principal Investigators: S. Moore (NMFS S&T), J....

Arctic Observing Networks: Collaborative Research: ITEX AON -understanding the relationships between vegetation change, plantphenology, and ecosystem function in a warming Arctic

University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) - The International Tundra Experiment (ITEX) was established in the early 1990s to understand the effects of warming and environmental variability on tundra vegetation properties and ecosystem function. The ITEX program has been extremely valuable for detection of changes in tundra plant and ecosystem responses to experimental warming and to background climate change across sites that span the...

Arctic Ecosystem Integrated Survey

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - The School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, has applied to the CCIAP for $3 million to conduct an Arctic Ecosystem Integrated Survey. The proposed project will provide a comprehensive assessment of the northeastern Bering Sea and Chukchi Sea ecosystems, and study the ecology of important fish species (e.g. salmon, pollock, herring and cod). The project...

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.

Development of New Methodologies for Use in Ecological Studies of Pacific Salmon and Other Fish Species Important to the Department of the Interior

US Geological Survey (USGS) - Specific objectives are 1) Archival tags: continue studies to test the archival tag techniques; 2) Otoliths: refinement and validation of the use of strontium to calcium ratios to determine the chronology of migration between freshwater and marine habitats, application of microchemistry to describe migration in salmonids, and application of otolith ageing and microstructure to studies of fish...

Wading Shorebird Habitats, Food Resources, Associated Infauna, Sediment Characteristics and Bioremediation Potential of resident Microbiota of Deltaic Mudflats (AK-11-10b)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - More information is needed about species composition, abundance, or distribution of the microfauna and meiofauna living within the interstitial spaces of the littoral zones along the Beaufort Sea coast. Shorebirds depend on meiofauna for food for pre-migratory fattening. Additionally, these organisms make important contributions to bioremediation of oil spills as well as the chemical factors...

Relating deep ocean habitat conditions to faunal distribution, diversity and abundance on the eastern Bering Sea slope

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - This project will provide information on deep water oceanographic conditions gathered from survey bottom trawls along the eastern Bering Sea slope from 200-1200 m. Parameters measured will include dissolved oxygen, ph, conductivity, depth, light, temperature and turbidity. The data will be correlated with fish and invertebrate distribution, life stage, abundance and diversity with a goal of...

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...
