The article examines the impacts of climate change on the transportation system of Alaska which has more than 6,600 miles of coastline, and an underlayer of permafrost in approximately 80 percent of its land mass. Its highways are revealed to be frequently icing, cracking and washing away due to the warming permafrost, coastal erosion and increasing storms. Heat is presented to increase subsurface water flow which in turn affects roads resulting in instability in surfaces and slopes.

The effects of exchanging noncertified with certified wood-burning devices on the 24h-average PM2.5concentrations in the nonattainment area of Fairbanks, Alaska, in a cold season (October to March) were investigated using the Weather Research and Forecasting model inline coupled with a chemistry package. Even changing out only 2930 uncertified woodstoves and 90 outdoor wood boilers reduced the 24 h-average PM2.5concentrations on average by 0.6 μg.m−3 (6%) and avoided seven out of 55 simulated exceedance days during this half-a-year. The highest reductions on any exceedance day ranged between 1.7 and 2.8 μg.m−3. The relative response factors obtained were consistently relatively low (~0.95) for all PM2.5 species...
This page allows you to search all of the reports and publications published in the scientific and technical reporting series by ADF&G's Commercial Fisheries, Sport Fish, and Subsistence divisions. There are three approaches you can use for searching these publications - The first two search through data fields in our publications database and the third will search through the text of the PDF documents themselves. Each method offers distinct advantages - roll the cursor over each search type to find out more!

National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska and throughout the U.S. have begun developing a spatially comprehensive monitoring program to inform management decisions, and to provide data to broader research projects. In an era of unprecedented rates of climate change, monitoring is essential to detecting, understanding, communicating and mitigating climate-change effects on refuge and other resources under the protection of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and requires monitoring results to address spatial scales broader than individual refuges. This document provides guidance for building a monitoring program for refuges in Alaska that meets refuge-specific management needs while also allowing synthesis and summary of ecological...

We reviewed existing and planned adaptation activities of federal, tribal, state, and local governments and the private sector in the United States (U.S.) to understand what types of adaptation activities are underway across different sectors and scales throughout the country. Primary sources of review included material officially submitted for consideration in the upcoming 2013 U.S. National Climate Assessment and supplemental peer-reviewed and grey literature. Although substantial adaptation planning is occurring in various sectors, levels of government, and the private sector, few measures have been implemented and even fewer have been evaluated. Most adaptation actions to date appear to be incremental changes,...

PURPOSE: The construction and operation of a 737-mile-long, 24-inch-diameter pipeline to transport natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs) from Alaskas North Slope to Fairbanks, Anchorage and the Cook Inlet area of Alaska are proposed. The Alaska Stand Alone Pipeline Project would connect with the central gas facility (CGF) near Prudhoe Bay, provide for connection to a Fairbanks natural gas distribution system, and connect to ENSTAR Natural Gas Companys (ENSTAR) pipeline system located in southcentral Alaska (Anchorage and the Cook Inlet area). The residential and commercial needs of southcentral Alaska are currently served by the Cook Inlet gas fields, but these existing fields cannot sustain the areas needs...

The article focuses on Alaska's water transportation which Alaska depends on in hauling bulk cargo like oil or coal out of the state and brining in freight ranging from refrigerated containers of lettuce to drill rigs. It provides the history of Alaska's water transportation and the increased commercialization of the Yukon River following the transfer of Alaska from Russia. It indicates that Alaska's mines and oil rely on water transportation to get their materials to market.
