Subsistence Bowhead Whaling Near Cross Island

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - This muti-year study will monitor impacts to subsistence whaling activities in the vicinity of Cross Island that may be associated with oil production. It will obtain baseline and trend data on whale hunting activities in the Cross Island area. The study will help assess if development activities result in changes to bowhead whale subsistence hunting practices, or to hunting success at Cross...

Oil in Ice: Transport, Fate, and Potential Exposure

University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) - Oil spilled in the arctic marine environment can be rapidly frozen into the ice sheet. The oil will in this way be to some extent preserved, in the sense that evaporation, dissolution, and degradation are expected to be greatly reduced. This implies that the oil will retain much of its potential acute toxicity upon release from the ice, either via transport in brine channels and/or eventual...

Surface Current Circulation High Frequency (HF) Radar Mapping in the Chukchi Sea (AK-09-06)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The collection of surface current data will be used to validate the BOEM ocean circulation model for the Chukchi Sea. These data will support the BOEM Oil-Spill-Risk Analysis (OSRA). OSRA is a cornerstone to regional EISs, environmental assessments (EAs), and oil-spill contingency planning. Information from this study will be used in NEPA analysis and documentation for Chukchi, DPPs, and...

Promoting Sustainable Oil and Gas Development on Alaska's North Slope through Local-Scale Integration of Geophysical and Traditional Knowledge

University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) - Increased oil and gas activities in Alaska’s Beaufort and Chukchi Seas may serve as a catalyst to more thoroughly investigate the research methodologies and institutional practices that incorporate local and traditional knowledge (LTK), thus promoting a sustainable future for North Slope communities, the coastal ecosystem, and the oil and gas industry itself. Most climate models and sea-ice...

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...
