Developing a JAVA-based graphical user interface to an Oracle relational database of arctic data for use by the U.S. Navy. The demo system is on-line at: (also have a CD-ROM that demos the use of the database) and is populated with the following SCICEX & historical data sets: 10,000 historical (NODC) temperature, salinity, and sound velocity profiles; 30 nmi spacing gridded temperature, salinity, and sound velocity profiles (GDEM); 250 segments of hi-res (1m spacing) and inflection-point-sampled ice keel data; and thousands of miles of along-track bathymetry data.

My research focuses on human vulnerability to environmental change (including climate change). The focus is primarily on indigenous peoples (current work on Inuit in the Canadian High Arctic and the Canadian western Arctic). Research examines human adaptive capacity, including current/past adaptation measures and past/current/future environmental/climate exposures to 1) assess current/future vulnerability; 2) integrate indigenous knowledge into science and policymaking.

Colonization, settlement, land-use, and political change in the North Atlantic. My primary research focuses on Iceland, preferring a long-term perspective on change spanning the 9th-19th centuries, rather than an exclusive focus on one period or analytical specialization. Current and active research on the use and interpretation of a Viking Age ritual site within one of Iceland's longest lava caves, on geochemical analyses of Icelandic opals and jaspers, and on the geochemical analysis of pigments used on Icelandic medieval illuminated manuscripts are all parts of a longer-term focus on materiality, mobility, and socio-political change in western Iceland and the North Atlantic.
I am also currently a co-PI on the NSF-funded Arctic Horizons project, examining priorities and goals for US social science research and funding in the North over the next decade.
