Environmental Change Risk Index for Arctic Facilities and Infrastructure in Coastal Alaska

A grant from the US Coast Guard will fund development of an Arctic Facilities and Infrastructure Environmental Change Risk Index for permafrost coastal and riverine landscapes of the Bering, Chukchi and Beaufort Seas in Alaska. The research will focus on conducting a coastal facilities and infrastructure engineering risk analysis along western and northern Alaska.

Submission deadline: 30 November 2021 – Call for papers focused on “Multi-Scale Analysis for Detecting the Processes, Causes, and Impacts of Permafrost Change and of Disruptive Events” in the journal Remote Sensing. Permafrost landscapes are extensive in area and potentially dynamic in behavior, producing a complex mix of landforms, materials and process interactions that areContinue reading “Call for Papers for New Special Issue!”

Permafrost Coasts Featured in NOAA’s 2020 Arctic Report Card

Observations on permafrost coasts were included in NOAA’s 2020 Arctic Report Card for the first time in the 15 year history of the annual publication. The Coastal Permafrost Erosion essay involved contributions from 24 authors located in 8 different countries, with half of the authors being an early career researcher. Key highlights of the essayContinue reading “Permafrost Coasts Featured in NOAA’s 2020 Arctic Report Card”

Coastal and Offshore Permafrost Rapid Response Assessment

We are excited to announce the release of a comprehensive education and outreach resource aimed at raising awareness about the importance of coastal and offshore permafrost and to identify urgent geoscience research needs. The Coastal and Offshore Permafrost Rapid Response Assessment (RRA) focuses primarily on areas of western North America where there is extensive offshoreContinue reading “Coastal and Offshore Permafrost Rapid Response Assessment”

PerCS-Net Data Visualization Space

We recently published the PerCSNetĀ data visualization space, with AXIOM Data Science. Currently we have included a number of datasets that show geotagged coastal imagery, current and past sea ice conditions, and near real-time environmental conditions. We will continue to populate the VizSpace with existing datasets from the ADC portal, other national and international data repositories,Continue reading “PerCS-Net Data Visualization Space”
