Study Plans

  • Project#: ALCC2012-06
    A team of interdisciplinary researchers will develop a detailed study plan to investigate how water body temperature and chemistry will respond to warmer air temperatures. The plan will address development of predictive models that forecast the effects of warmer temperatures on primary and secondary productivity, fish growth and energetic demands, and contaminant dynamics within the Barrow/Atqasuk focus watershed.

  • Project#: ALCC2012-07
    A team of researchers will develop a detailed study plan to evaluate whether and how climate change may alter the availability of key freshwater bird habitats. The study plan will focus on understanding these relationships on wetland areas around Barrow, Alaska, where collaborators have on-going studies investigating surface hydrology, snow cover, and habitat use of nesting shorebirds.

  • Project#: ALCC2012-08
    A team of researchers will develop an integrated study plan linking aquatic habitat connectivity, water quality and temperature, availability of freshwater habitat, and trophic mismatches and productivity. It is important to understand these linkages in a context relevant to policy and management.

  • Project#: ALCC2012-09
    A team of researchers, including a biogeochemist, microbiologist, plankton ecologist, and ichthyologist, will develop a project to determine the potential effects of increased humic delivery (the tea-colored compounds seen in rivers) to the coastal Arctic. The team will also design experiments with humic additions to coastal plankton and larval fish communities that evaluate the response to different discharge scenarios.
