Characterizing Bacterial Communities in Beaufort Sea Sediments in a Changing Arctic (AK-13-03-19)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - Benthic bacteria play an integral role in nutrient cycling and organic matter (OM) degradation in marine sediments. In the Arctic, changing climate conditions have reduced sea ice cover resulting in shifts in marine primary productivity patterns, which affects the quality of OM deposited to the seafloor. Providing links between bacterial community composition and community function is a...

Dall's Sheep

National Park Service (NPS) - The primary goal of the Arctic Network Dall’s sheep monitoring program is to determine trends in the abundance and distribution of sheep in the parks and preserves which span the central and western Brooks Range, while being statistically robust enough to deal with the difficulties of surveying in this remote area. Over 41,000 km2 of potential Dall’s sheep habitat have been delineated for this...

Shallow Lakes

National Park Service (NPS) - Tens of thousands of shallow lakes are distributed across the Arctic Network. Although small, these ecosystems serve a diverse array of ecological functions ranging from flood protection, groundwater recharge, and water purification to providing prime habitat to moose, waterfowl and furbearers. Because they are so productive and diverse, shallow lakes are important to the people who hunt and...

Thermokarst Lake Drainage--Vulnerability to Climate Change and Prediction of Future Lake Habitat Distribution on the North Slope

Wacp ifsar lakeswithdrainagegradients Geophysical Institute Permafrost Laboratory, UAF (GIPL UAF) - Widespread changes in lake distribution on the Arctic Coastal Plain (ACP) would affect water availability for humans, fish and other water-dependent species. The Thermokarst Lake Drainage project will model the susceptibility of lakes on the ACP to drainage due to changes in permafrost conditions and surface hydrology at the lakes margins. As the model is developed and improved, it will provide...
