Understanding the response of Alaska's Ecosystems to a changing climate to support resource managers and sustainable communities

 

In partnership with the Aleutian and Bearing Sea Islands LCC and the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), the Alaska Climate Science Center will sponsor a community conversation on climate change in Unalaska, Alaska. This session is being hosted by the Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska and will take place on September 18 from 7:00-9:00 PM at the Museum of the Aleutians.

Along with USGS colleagues Ed Neal and Gary Solin, AK CSC and Alaska Science Center hydrologist Ryan Toohey has published a new USGS open file report, Guidelines for the Collection of Continuous Stream Water-Temperature Data in Alaska.

Alaska Climate Science Center and USGS Alaska Science Center hydrologist Ryan Toohey has joined fellow USGS researchers Paul Schuster and Nicole Herman-Mercer in conducting an innovative project known as “Strategic Needs of Water on the Yukon” or SNOWY.

The USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) and seven of the eight (Alaska, North Central, Northeast, Pacific Islands, South Central, Southeast and Southwest) Department of the Interior Climate Science Centers (CSCs) are seeking Statements of Interest (SOIs) and proposals for funding in Fiscal Year (FY) 2015.

The Third National Climate Assessment (NCA) provides a comprehensive summary of climate change impacts on the U.S., now and in the future. The report includes observed trends and projected future conditions of climate change in the United States, as well as information on climate change mitigation and adaptation.  

Jeremy Littell, Alaska CSC Lead Scientist, will present two talks for the Alaska Fire Science Consortium at the Spring Alaska Fire Science Workshop in Fairbanks, AK, April 2, 2014.

Each year a massive amount of freshwater—equal to nearly twice the annual discharge of the Mississippi River—enters the Gulf of Alaska. This freshwater runoff is economically and ecologically important, but a new study supported by the Alaska Climate Science Center shows that as glaciers change, future runoff patterns from may have important regional differences.

Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell announced today that the Alaska Climate Science Center will share more than $130,000 with the Northwest CSC and North Pacific LCC for research to assist Native groups in planning for and adapting to climate change.

During 2013, Alaska Climate Science Center researchers across several disciplines have produced many new publications:

Arendt, A., S. Luthcke, A. Gardner, S. O'Neel, D. Hill, G. Moholdt and W. Abdalati, 2013. Analysis of a GRACE global mascon solution for Gulf of Alaska glaciers, 59(217), 913-924. doi: 10.3189/2013JoG12J197

The Water and Environmental Research Center and the Alaska Climate Science Center are seeking proposals for water research in Alaska.
