    the world s soils oceans atmosphere and living organisms Northern tundra ecosystems play a key role in the carbon cycle because the cold moist and frozen soils trap rotting organic material in the soils This very slowly decaying organic material has caused carbon to build up in the Arctic during the past thousands of years Now warming in the Arctic is slowly causing the tundra to become warmer and dryer As a result the trapped carbon leaves the soil as carbon dioxide and goes into the atmosphere 44 110 n a No new Changing Tundra Landscapes 19 42 n a No new Chukchi Sea Ecosystem Study This

3 500 meter long ice core or sample of ice from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet Because of the weight of the overlying snowpack snow that falls and accumulates on ice sheets re crystallizes and forms annual layers over time The ice core recovered during the project will have annual resolution or distinct yearly markings for the past 40 000 years In ice sheets the compression of snow traps small bubbles of air in the layers of ice By measuring concentrations of greenhouse gasses and non greenhouse gasses and their isotopes trapped within bubbles in the ice the team aims to develop climate records dating back to 100 000 years before present This ice core will provide the first Southern Hemisphere climate and greenhouse gas records of comparable time resolution and duration to ice cores previously recovered in Greenland The ice core will enable scientists to make detailed comparisons of greenhouse gas concentrations and environmental conditions between the Northern and Southern hemispheres with a greater level of detail than previously possible The biology of the ice collected will also be investigated 24 52 n a No new Ice Cube Neutrino Observatory 2013 How do you find

interdisciplinary effort to address the rapid environmental changes occurring in the Antarctic Peninsula region as a consequence of the abrupt collapse of the Larsen B Ice Shelf in the fall of 2002 As a result of this collapse a profound transformation in ecosystem structure and function has been seen in the coastal waters of the western Weddell Sea This transformation appears to be redistributing the flow of energy between organisms and to be causing a rapid change in the ecosystem beneath the ice shelf For instance the previously dark waters of the Larsen B embayment now support a thriving

layer of permafrost As water melts and pools on top of the permafrost thaw lakes are formed Much of the North Slope of Alaska is covered in such thaw lakes As they decompose organic material the bacteria and other microorganisms living in thaw lakes produce either carbon dioxide or methane depending on the conditions Methane is a highly potent greenhouse gas with a global warming potential 22 times that of carbon dioxide and increased microbial activity in thawing permafrost areas could lead to changes in the atmosphere due to the increased release of methane 22 46 n a No new Microorganisms in Antarctic Glacier Ice Are microorganisms metabolically active in glacier ice To address this exciting question the research team will travel to the McMurdo Dry Valleys one of the harshest environments on Earth to study the biology geology and chemistry of basal ice the dynamic layer of ice closest to the bedrock at the base of a glacier 55 134 Creeping by Guest Jan 7 2015 12 50pm No new Nitrogen in the Arctic Ocean Ecosystem The research team will be sampling the coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean to investigate how microbial creatures affect the productivity of a coastal Arctic ecosystem They will travel to the field site via snowmobile and sample the seawater through a hole drilled in the sea ice The seawater collected will be used to look at competition between autotrophs organisms that make their own food and heterotrophs organisms that cannot make their own food for nitrogen N in the waters near Barrow Alaska The field work will take place over the course of three seasons two years to give researchers the opportunity to investigate the coastal water ecosystems in different seasons winter and summer and with different amounts of daylight The sources of nitrogen vary when there is no daylight in the winter from the summer where there is nearly 24 hours of daylight In ocean ecosystems microbes dominate many of the processes and the major producers and consumers of carbon dioxide CO2 and other greenhouse gases Understanding the role of microbial communities in the Arctic ecosystem is and essential part of predicting the impact of climate change on Arctic food webs and other natural cycles Learn more at the project website 8 18 n a No new Northern Alaska Coastal Ecosystems The goal of this research is to determine how seasonally distinct terrestrial inputs of water and organic matter influence microbial and animal communities in coastal waters of the Alaskan Beaufort Sea 6 11 n a No new Nutrient Transport in Arctic Watersheds The research team is evaluating how changes in water and nutrient cycles on land can affect stream networks in the Arctic Changing climate in the Arctic may contribute to increases in the transport of nutrients to river networks and oceans by causing the release of nutrients from thawing permafrost altering precipitation patterns increasing rates of biogeochemical reactions or expanding storage capacity in thawed soils These changes may have far reaching effects because flowing water connects land to downstream aquatic ecosystems 30 63 n a No new Nuvuk Archaeology Studies 31 89 n a No new

Germany Italy and the UK 37 82 n a No new Oceanographic Conditions of Bowhead Whale Habitat The research team will be working out of Barrow AK 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 AK is a feeding hotspot for migrating bowhead whales and 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 124 230 n a No new Oden Antarctic Expedition 06 Post questions and comments for members of the 2006 Oden

unclear whether different species will respond similarly or differently to the environmental shifts that accompany climate change e g longer growing seasons and warmer temperatures Stronger responses by some species within a community or strong responses by certain species groups could lead to changes in the structure of the food web and its role in arctic ecosystems 127 246 n a No new Predatory Spiders in the Arctic Food Web 2013 This project explores the role of wolf spiders within arctic communities and specifically whether climate change is stimulating changes in these predators that
