Nearshore Fish Atlas of Alaska

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - NOAA Fisheries Auke Bay Laboratories and the Alaska Regional Office designed this web-based Atlas to provide information on the distribution, relative abundance, and habitat use of nearshore fishes in Alaska. Shallow, nearshore waters are some of the most productive habitats in Alaska and the most vulnerable to human disturbance. To date, using a beach seine as our sampling method, we have...

Fish behavioral and physical responses to vibroseis noise Prudhoe Bay, Alaska 2003

Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADFG) - The study was designed to address the potential physical effects to fish from the energy imparted to a water body by vibroseis equipment and also to semi-quantitatively assess the magnitude of the behavioral disturbance caused to fish by operating the equipment in their proximity. The study was conducted northeast of Deadhorse, Alaska at an isolated and flooded gravel mine site and in the...

A Half-Century of Change in Arctic Alaskan Shrubs: A Photographic-Based Assessment

National Center for Atmospheric Research - Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR EOL) - In this study, the locations of 193 old aerial photographs of northern Alaskan landscapes were rephotographed and assessed for changes in vegetation. The original photographs were taken over northern Alaska between 1948 and 1951, and the new photographs were taken between 1999 and 2003. The region covered by the original and repeat photographs stretches from the southern extent of the Brooks...

Recovery of Lichen in Tussock Tundra Following Fire in Northwestern Alaska

US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) - Paired permanent vegetative cover transects were established after a small (2 ha) 1981 tundra fire in the Buckland River valley of western Alaska. Data on the regeneration of forage lichens was collected 14 years after the bum and compared to conditions in adjacent unburned plots. Graminoids, primarily cottongrass (Eriophorum vaginatum), were stimulated by the fire and grew still more...
