IARC’s Alaska Arctic Observatory & Knowledge Hub is excited to share their 2019 newsletter. AAOKH helps northern Alaska coastal communities share their expertise and observations of environmental change. Read AAOKH news to hear first hand experiences from local observers about how warming air and ocean temperatures, shrinking sea ice and other changes are impacting wildlife and the Indigenous way of life.
This newsletter also introduces new AAOKH faces, including a graduate student originally from Utqiaġvik who will help communities monitor coastal erosion.
