In Alaska, changes in snow, ice, and weather, have resulted in risks to human lives, infrastructure damage, threats to valuable natural resources, and disruption of hunting, fishing, and livelihoods.Leaders from the Aleutians to the Chukchi Sea came together for a series of Coastal Resilience and Adaptation Workshops, spearheaded by three Landscape Conservation Cooperatives and the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association. Tribal leaders, resource managers, community planners, and scientists explored strategies to adapt to these unprecedented changes.The workshop series brought together 14 Organizing Partners 34 Tribes, 15 State & Federal Agencies, and a total of more than 200 participants to meet in four regional...

The Adapt Alaska Collaborative grew out of a set of initiatives to promote climate resilience and adaptation in Alaska. On May 24 and 25, 2017 a group of participants (including representatives of Alaska regional, state and federal agencies and organizations) gathered at a work session to identify next steps to build on the momentum generated by these initiatives toward a more resilient Alaska. At the work session, three working groups formed around specific areas of effort, including a Planning Working Group with the task of identifying ways to streamline the many planning requirements associated with implementing climate resilience and adaptation strategies.The Adapt Alaska Planning Working Group looked at a range...

We propose using an existing, longterm data set of sea urchin production, sea otter performance, and ecosystem state metrics from the last 30 years tobuild a spatially explicit sea otter population viability analysis (PVA) model, incorporating climate change effects. We propose a 3-pronged approach in year 1 of this project to evaluate (obj. 1) variability in sea urchin demographics over space and time to identify scaledependent patterns of variation in production using existing datasets, (obj. 2) define the direct effects of climate change and ocean acidification on sea urchin productivity through indepth literature review and contributions from experiments by collaborators, and (obj. 3) determine how effects of...
Using Automated Identification System (AIS) point data acquired from Alaska Marine Exchange’s station-based networks in the Aleutians and Bering Strait and satellite platforms maintained by ExactEarth to produce monthly and seasonal summaries of commercial shipping intensity by ship type. AIS data evaluation and spatial characterization will be completed by a University of Alaska, Fairbanks PhD student in cooperation with the Wildlife Conservation Society. Final layers will be made available to managers and stakeholders through the Arctic E. Their expanded regional layers will be analyzed by a group of leading NGOs including: Alaska Marine Conservation Council, Audubon Alaska, Oceana and the Wildlife Conservation...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
