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.
Billy Adams recently recorded an “ice breakout” event offshore of Utqiagvik. The landfast sea ice in front of town detached with the recent warm temperatures and winds, which is quite unusual for February.
This event has big implications for safe travel, hunting, wildlife management, etc. Billy’s photos are below.
