The Anaktuvuk River Fire was the largest, highest-severity wildfire recorded on Alaska’s North Slope since records began in 1956. The 2007 Anaktuvuk River Fire was an order of magnitude larger than the average fire size in the historic record for northern Alaska and indices of severity were substantially higher than for other recorded tundra burns. An interdisciplinary team assessed fire effects including burn severity, potential plant community shifts, and effects on permafrost and active layers. Observers monumented, photographed, and measured 24 burned and 17 unburned reference transects, starting the year after the fire, and spanning the range of vegetation types and burn severities.
The Northwest Boreal Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NWB LCC) is a partnership between agencies involved in land management across Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and British Columbia. The NWB LCC aims to coordinate science and support to decision makers for improving land management decisions. Knowledge gaps have been identified by the NWB LCC and are beginning to be filled. One of the priority information gaps is knowledge of the anthropogenic footprint currently on the landscape.The anthropogenic footprint is all the disturbance types made by various human activities, usually through some form of industrial development. Examples include roads, power lines, pipelines, and clear cuts among many others....

Concern about invasive species in Alaska is a growing concern, attracting attention from land managers, politicians and the public. Nearly half the new discoveries of invasive plants, animals, and insects in the state are reported by concerned individuals with a general interest in invasive species. The development of a mobile application for invasive plant identification and reporting will help enable the public to gather and share new invasive plant discoveries. This project will result in the development of a decision tool for identifying non-natives plant species, which will provide the foundation for the app. Project staff will also review user-submitted requests for identification assistance, review app-generated...

Piecing it all Together - Landscape Patterns Environmental Quality Analysis What key parts of the environment do we need to keep in order to have functional ecosystems? How do we measure the impact of human activities on the health of the environment? What tipping points exist that we need to avoid? What clear themes are well established in research? A comprehensive review of research was just completed that attempts to answer these questions and more. The report is called Landscape Patterns Environmental Quality Analysis. Landscape pattern analysis is based on the premise that there are indispensable patterns in any landscape that, if maintained, will conserve essential landscape processes. These landscape...
The cascade of uncertainty that underscores climate impact assessments of regional hydrology undermines their value for long-term water resources planning and management. This study presents a statistical framework that quantifies and propagates the uncertainties of hydrologic model response through projections of future streamflow under climate change. Different sources of hydrologic model uncertainty are accounted for using Bayesian modeling. The distribution of model residuals is formally characterized to quantify predictive skill, and Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling is used to infer the posterior distributions of both hydrologic and error model parameters. Parameter and residual error uncertainties are integrated...

An interdisciplinary team assessed fire effectsincluding burn severity, potential plant community shifts, and effects on permafrost andactive layers. Observers monumented, photographed, and measured 24 burned and 17unburned reference transects, starting the year after the fire, and spanning the range ofvegetation types and burn severities. Three independent ocular estimates of burn severityat varying scales were made, two ground-based indices and one aerial index. Remotelysensed data and indices were...
