Sasha Peterson is a PhD candidate at University of Texas at El Paso whose research seeks to understand the patterns and drivers of erosion in Beaufort Lagoons and across the North Slope of Alaska. Read more about her work and interests.
Several PerCS-Net members contributed to a research article published in Nature Climate Change that predicts that coastal erosion on the pan-Arctic scale will exceed its historical range of variability andContinue reading “Recent Paper Published in Nature Climate Change”
More than 10 PerCS-Net members collaborated on a recent review paper that was published in the journal Nature Reviews Earth & Environment in January 2022 highlighting the drivers, dynamics and impacts of changing Arctic coasts. The article is one of a collection of papers on Permafrost in a warming world published in January that examine the physical, biogeochemical, and ecosystem changes related to permafrost thaw and the associated impacts.
Earth Observation for Permafrost dominated Arctic Coasts (EO4PAC) is a new effort funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) Polar Science Cluster to develop the next generation of the Arctic Coastal Dynamics database, a geospatial product on Arctic coastal erosion initially released in 2012. The focus of the two-year project is on complementation of in situ records with satellite data across the entire Arctic.
