Arctic Bluff Retreat and Inundation of an Ecologically Sensitive Barrier Island System due to a Changing Global Climate

US Geological Survey (USGS) - As part of a larger National Shoreline Assessment Project, the USGS is currently collecting and analyzing regional data to describe coastal erosion trends along Alaska's North Slope. A focused study is being conducted along the shoreline of the Chukchi Sea in the vicinity of Wainwright, Alaska. The work aims to assess the potential for changing bluff erosion rates and inundation of barrier...

Permafrost temperature profiles

US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) - Permafrost borehole temperatures were measured in 1985, 1998, and 2004 on Barter Island near the village of Kaktovik and in 1985 and 1998 in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (Arctic NWR) north of the Brooks Range. These measurements indicate that the century-long warming documented for the central and western Arctic has also occurred in the region near Barter Island and in the northern...

Glaucous Gull Movements and Feeding

North Slope Borough (NSB) - Prior to this study, there was relatively little information about diets of Glaucous Gulls on the North Slope. Many have suggested that with increasing human activities on the North Slope, especially with regards to oil and gas exploration and development, gull populations have expanded. This expansion could be due to the increased availability of food for gulls from landfills and dumpsters...
