Alaska’s Changing Environment publication

Alaska’s Changing Environment compiles observations of physical and biological change in and around Alaska.

The publication, which is intended for a general audience, focuses on the time period 2014 – August 2019, but often provides information from earlier decades for historical context.

Using mostly visualizations and photos, Alaska’s Changing Environment demonstrates monumental shifts in temperature, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, plants, animals, the ocean, and other areas.

The International Arctic Research Center intends to update this product every three years with the most current information available.
