Webinar series about how Native Villages and other communities in Alaska can apply state, federal and tribal policies to address climate change impacts on water and subsistence resources through water resource management and protection, land and water rights, sovereignty and other resiliency and mitigation strategies.
The Nome Eskimo Community (NEC), in collaboration with ACCAP, will develop a climate adaptation plan for the tribal organizations located in the Nome Census area.
Improve preparedness and response to annual springtime flooding in Alaska and Yakutia through the development of effective and easily adaptable flood risk mitigation and disaster response and recovery strategies.
The ability to make predictions on permafrost activity (freeze, thaw, date and depth) is improving, especially on a seasonal scale.
ACCAP (Walsh) served on the review team that reviewed for the 2015 Center for Global Change (CGC) student grant competition at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. CGC annually funds students through a variety of sources and funding agencies (federal and state) as well as University of Alaska general funds.
In the spring of 2015 ACCAP solicited proposals as part of a minigrant competition.
Extreme events assessment for Alaska using dynamically downscaled regional climate model simulations.
Marine operators in Alaskan coastal waters and adjacent seas are sensitive to weather constraints. Among the stakeholder groups affected are commercial shippers (including barge operators), coastal communities, fishing vessel operators and the offshore oil and gas industry.
Describe the potential nature and scope of economic effects of climate change that are likely to become manifest in Alaska over the next 30-50 years.
Arctic sea ice has declined dramatically during the last few decades. Estimating the maximum and minimum sea ice extent, before it occurs, is a important tool for developing and implementing near-term public policy.
