    Description The research team worked out of Barrow Alaska at the juxtaposition of two Arctic seas the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas It is a region frequently traveled by the endangered bowhead whale This project had its genesis in understanding why the region near Barrow Alaska has been a feeding hotspot for migrating bowhead whales The whales and their prey will continue to be a focus of the team s interpretations The research team conducted oceanographic sampling of the physical and biological marine environment in the region over the period 2005 2011 and observed significant inter annual variability Long term studies of the ocean conditions in the Arctic are needed in order to understand how these environments vary inter annually The research team will continue to document conditions in the biological physical ocean ecosystem through annual boat based surveys in order to predict and understand potential impacts of climate change on the Arctic ecosystem View Project Page IceCube Project Location South Pole Antarctica Project Funded Title IceCube Project Description How do you find something that isn t directly visible That s the challenge faced by the team who developed the IceCube neutrino detector under the ice at the South Pole Just as X rays allow us to see bone fractures and MRIs help doctors find damage to soft tissue neutrinos will reveal new information about the Universe that can t be seen directly The in ice particle detector at the South Pole records the interactions of neutrinos which are nearly massless sub atomic messenger particles Neutrinos are incredibly common about 100 trillion pass through your body as you read this subatomic particles that have no electric charge and almost no mass They are created by radioactive decay and nuclear reactions such as those in the Sun and other stars Neutrinos rarely react with other particles in fact most of them pass through objects like the earth without any interaction This makes them ideal for carrying information from distant parts of the universe but it also makes them very hard to detect View Project Page Historical Ecology for Risk Management Project Location Barrow Alaska Project Funded Title Historical Ecology for Risk Management Youth Sustainability HERMYS Project Description Applied Research in Environmental Sciences Nonprofit Inc ARIES the Barrow Arctic Science Consortium BASC the North Slope Borough of Risk Management and Cooperative Extension of Ilisgavik College collaborated to plan develop and implement a historical ecology model for the North Slope Coastal Region of Alaska Historical ecology is an applied research program that focuses on interactions of people and their environments Research applications involve studying and understanding this relationship in both time and space to gain a full picture of all of its accumulated effects The research program can be applied to understanding changes among community landscapes that can assist strategies for the future For this proposal the emphases aligned with the ARIES mission of research education and community engagement the Inupiaq Learning Framework of the North Slope School District and the eco heritage indicator
