An Integrated Approach to Arctic Aquatic Habitat Change

Project Summary
Project CodeALCC2012-08
Project Lead(s) University of Alaska, Fairbanks, Water and Environmental Research Center
DescriptionA 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. Therefore the study area be will primarily focused on the Fish Creek Watershed, which represents a wide range of Arctic climatic and physiographic conditions, as well as management issues related to surrounding subsistence and petroleum development. Ongoing monitoring and research activities focused around both local resource use and climate change provide the template to develop a robust and feasible interdisciplinary study plan to meet Arctic LCC objectives.
