Social network analysis of climate science and service organizations in Alaska

The landscape of climate science and service organizations and entities in Alaska has expanded rapidly over the past three years and continues to dynamically evolve.

This social network analysis mapped the relationships, communication channels and information exchange between federal, state, tribal, industry and non-profit entities engaged in climate science and services in Alaska in order to provide an informed context for identifying and planning future ACCAP research and outreach.

A detailed, nested analysis of the networks of science and stakeholders specific to the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center (AK CASC) and the US Fish & Wildlife Service Landscape Conservation Cooperatives in Alaska will inform AK CASC activities and planning.
