  • Project#: ALCC2011-06
    The Geographic Information Network for Alaska will complete uniform and consistent ecological mapping of the North Slope region and provide a summary of existing field site ecological descriptions (including photos) in a web based environment. Existing automated field information and photos that have reliable geolocation information will be compiled and entered in a web based geographic display based on the ecological mapping.

  • Project#: ALCC2010-03
    The distribution and abundance of fishes in Alaska Arctic is poorly known, especially for resident species. Only a few arctic watersheds have been the subject of fisheries or water quality investigations.

  • Project#: ALCC2011-14
    US Geological Survey staff will expediently process LiDAR data acquired in Summer 2010 along the North Slope of Alaska between Colville River and Staines River. As part of this task, the LiDAR data will be quality-checked for relative and absolute accuracy (where ground data are available).

  • Project#: ALCC2011-15
    LCC funding will allow completion of this ongoing BLM initiative to develop a North Slope-wide cover type map and create a crosswalk that integrates all component cover type maps that comprise the larger overall North Slope cover type map.

  • Project#: ALCC2011-19
    This initiative intends to facilitate research within the North Slope science community through improved data sharing and collaboration. This will be achieved through the development and implementation of secure data services (SDS) protocols within the North Slope Science Catalog.

  • Project#: ALCC2010-14
    The US Fish and Wildlife Service, Arctic LCC, and Bureau of Land Management are supporting development of a comprehensive database of yellow-billed loon observations. The database contains information on yellow-billed loon observations, systematic surveys for loons, and incidental observations.

  • Project#: ALCC2012-05
    This project builds upon the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program's National Assessment of Shoreline Change project. High-resolution LiDAR elevation data has been acquired for much of the northern coast of Alaska, but most river deltas and embayments were not included in these earlier efforts.

  • Project#: ALCC2012-10
    The Arctic LCC and Alaska Climate Science Center have partnered with UAF to develop a new permafrost map for northern Alaska. Researchers have compiled existing soil and permafrost data from available sources to create a region-wide permafrost database and landscape-level (1:1,000,000 scale) map that is suitable for regional modelling and climate impact assessments.

  • Project#: ALCC2012-11
    The Arctic LCC and USGS have partnered with the Alaska Satellite Facility to make high-quality historical orthomosaics of the Arctic Alaska coast available. Imagery collected as part of Alaska High-Altitude Aerial Photography Program (AHAP) during 1978-1986 will be orthorectified and mosaicked to create a dataset suitable for detecting and quantifying changes in the coastline between Cape Krusenstern National Monument and the U.

  • Project#: ALCC2013-1001
    This dataset depicts the general boundaries of the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCC) that encompass Alaska. Users are advised that the shared boundary between Western Alaska LCC and Northwest Boreal LCC (formally Northwestern Interior Forest LCC) has been modified.
