Speaking: Mark Bertram, Supervisory Wildlife Biologist, Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge
Online: 10:00-11:00 am AKDT, 2:00-3:00 pm EDT
Mark Bertram, supervisory wildlife biologist for the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge will guide you through the impacts of climatic change on resources in the Yukon Flats Basin. Extending 220 miles east-west along the Arctic Circle, the Basin lies between the Brooks Range to the north and the limestone peaks of the White Mountains to the south. The Yukon River bisects the Basin and contributes to the vast floodplain of lakes, ponds, and streams that dominate the landscape.
The Center for Arctic Policy Studies (CAPS) announces their upcoming webinar, titled Alaska's Arctic Security Complex and Evolving Dynamics in Nome.
During this webinar, Dr. Brandon Boylan and Dr. Jeremy Speight will discuss the concept of security as it applies to Alaska's Arctic. Drawing on theoretical concepts of securitization and human security to inform a novel matrix of various levels and types of security, Dr. Boylan and Dr. Speight examine the security implications for an expanded deep water port in Nome, Alaska.
