People of IARC: Nancy Fresco

As network coordinator for IARC’s Scenarios Network for Alaska + Arctic Planning (SNAP), Research Assistant Professor Nancy Fresco organizes and contributes to many of the organization’s scientific and multidisciplinary research projects. With a background in biology, forest ecology, and environmental education, she serves as a strong example of SNAP’s mission to collaborate across fields and disciplines to forge relationships between research and stakeholders.

Understanding Bering Sea changes requires new partnerships

University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists presented their work at the American Geophysical Union’s fall meeting in Washington D.C. last week. Here are some research highlights from the world’s largest Earth and space science meeting. Later freeze-up. Warmer surface water. Shifting walrus diets. Less cold water to serve as refuge for young fish. Changing pollock distribution.…

Science and art illustrate changing marine Arctic ecosystem

A recent study led by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists Claudine Hauri and Seth Danielson is combining art and science to characterize the Chukchi Sea, a rapidly changing ecosystem off northwestern Alaska. The Chukchi Ecosystem Observatory is the first Arctic monitoring site to continuously and simultaneously measure a large suite of biological, chemical and physical characteristics of…

Living off the land: Environmental impacts to access in Interior Alaska

IARC affiliated Community Partnerships for Self Reliance recently partnered with several groups including Scenarios Network for Alaska + Arctic Planning to develop this visualization of change across Interior Alaska. Between 2016 and 2017, 26 observers from nine communities in Interior Alaska documented climate-related environmental conditions that impacted their travel to areas used for hunting, fishing,…

UAF Arctic Research Open House

In conjunction with the Alaska National Lab Day, 11 Arctic research facilities will open their doors to the public. “The coolest part of my job is coming in the morning and seeing where there were earthquakes last night and whether anyone felt them,” explains Helena Buurman at the Alaska Earthquake Center. This is one of…
