Alaska Climate Webinar: Current Coastal Change Research/Management Projects and Priority Information Needs from Cook Inlet through Southeastern Alaska
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 8 November 2016
Where: Online or in person at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Akasofu Building, Room 407
The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a webinar entitled, "Current Coastal Change Research/Management Projects and Priority Information Needs from Cook Inlet through Southeastern Alaska." The webinar will be presented by Michaela Swanson of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Research on coastal change in the north Pacific has increased rapidly in recent years, making it challenging to track existing projects, understand their cumulative insights, gauge remaining research gaps, and prioritize future work. The goals of this project were to foster better coordination about coastal change studies, help practitioners and scholars learn from one another, identify existing research gaps, increase transparency and accessibility to stakeholders in the region, and provide a framework for better understanding how projects interact. Investigators identified current coastal change projects in the region
by conducting an extensive internet search utilizing existing databases and online resources and sending out requests for information to stakeholders from a diverse range of university, state, federal, tribal and local institutions. This webinar will present the results of this research.
