The Alaska Arctic Observatory and Knowledge Hub (AAOKH) at the International Arctic Research Center and University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) seeks a Post Doctoral Fellow interested in applied transdisciplinary data science. We are searching for early career researchers interested in collaborative approaches to improve the relevance and usefulness of community-based environmental observations across coastal Arctic Alaska. AAOKH is a sustained and year-round community-based monitoring network established in 2016, following on a predecessor program called the Seasonal Ice Zone Observing Network that was founded in 2007. A foundational goal is to develop partnerships with residents of Arctic Alaska to facilitate knowledge Read full story

Tomorrow Dec 3, at 10 am, join AAOKH Science Lead Donna Hauser, Sea Grant’s Gay Sheffield, and UAF’s Rick Thoman for a summary of 2019’s notable observations and conditions from the Bering and Chukchi Sea regions. Key observations and measurements by AAOKH observers will be featured in this webinar.
AAOKH will be presenting community-based observations of Arctic Change today at the Arctic Futures 2050 meeting, which has a goal to bring together “Arctic scientists, Indigenous Peoples, and policy makers jointly exploring the knowledge needed to inform decisions concerning the Arctic in coming decades.” Although it’s on East Coast time (4 hr earlier than AK), you can live stream or watch recordings of the sessions later at this link: https://www.searcharcticscience.org/…/conference-2019/stream.
