Fresh Eyes on Ice

Fresh Eyes on Ice is a freshwater ice observation network focused on Alaska. Winter is the most rapidly changing season in the Arctic, causing widespread responses in freshwater ice and the ecosystems and communities that rely on frozen lakes and rivers.

Currently focused on Alaskan lake and rivers, observations relies on field studies, remote sensing, cameras and buoys, historic data, community-based monitoring, and citizen science.

With support from the National Science Foundation’s Arctic Observing Network and Navigating the New Arctic programs, we are working to improve observations and understanding of freshwater ice including public participation in this process.
