Changing Ice: Managing the North American Arctic

(IMPORTANT: this seminar begins at 12pm and ends at 1pm EST as opposed to the standard 12:15-1:15 time)

Understanding ice changes is critical for supporting community sustainability, habitat conservation and resource development in Alaska and the Arctic as a whole. Please join the Office of Policy Analysis on April 9 to learn how the USGS Alaska Climate Science Center (CSC) uses a whole-systems approach linking glacier retreat and permafrost loss to impacts on ecosystems and the goods, services and the amenities they provide. The Alaska CSC is developing vulnerability assessments, decision support tools, landscape scenarios, and other products that have a wide variety of immediate, real-world applications in the face of changes in the Arctic.
