This project established a permafrost monitoring network in this region, providing a baseline of permafrost thermal regimes for assessing future change at a total of 26 automated monitoring stations. Stations have collected year-round temperature data from the active layer and the permafrost starting from the summer of 2011. The strong correspondence between spatial variability in permafrost thermal regime and an existing ecotype map allowed for the development of a map of ‘permafrost thermal classes’ for the broader study region. Further, the annual temperature data was used to calibrate models of soil thermal regimes as a function of climate, providing estimates of both historic and future permafrost thermal regimes...
The objective of this project was to produce an Alaskan Existing Vegetation Type (AKEVT) map at 30m resolution for a portion of the Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative (WALCC) region using a very consistent (2000 +/- 1 yr.) remote sensing data set (Landsat 7 ETM+) and the same methodology. The mapped area encompasses the western and northern parts of the WALCC region, plus the Kodiak Archipelago.
