LTER: Beaufort Sea Lagoons: An Arctic Coastal Ecosystem in Transition

University of Texas Austin (UTXA) - This project will establish a new Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site along the Alaskan Arctic coastline. Research based out of Utqiagvik (formerly Barrow), Deadhorse, and Kaktovik will address how changes in shoreline erosion and freshwater inflows to the coastal ocean over seasonal, annual, and longer timeframes influence near-shore food webs. Research will be conducted in collaboration...

Chukchi Sea Environmental Studies Program: Benthic Ecology

ConocoPhillips (CPAI) - 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...

Tracing the flow of terrestrial organic nutrients and ancient glacial carbon through coastal marine food webs

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - Where glaciers meet the sea in the Gulf of Alaska (GOA), they create unique and productive marine habitats. Ringed by the continent’s tallest coastal mountains, 20% of the GOA coastal watershed is covered by glacial ice and the annual freshwater discharge into the GOA from glacial melt is comparable to that of the Mississippi river. Freshwater influx drives the Alaska Coastal Current (ACC)...
