Climate change is affecting Alaska in profound ways that require innovative approaches to research. Research projects supported by the Alaska Climate Science Center often cross several disciplines in order to broadly address ecosystem responses to climate change. The research direction of the Alaska Climate Science Center is determined collaborativly by representatives of federal, state, tribal, and regional organizations. The Alaska Climate Science Center aims to meet high-level climate science priorities while ensuring this science also is pertinent to and addresses management needs.
The Alaska Climate Science Center works with several partners to support the implementation of research projects that vary widely in scale. Brief research project descriptions are listed below. Select a specific project for more infomation.
