2015 IARC Summer School
Arctic in a warming climate: Connection to vegetation, permafrost and hydrology
About the summer school
Course will provide an overview of the controls of ecosystem variability in northern Alaska, from Alaska's Interior to the Arctic, and an illustration of the interplay between data collection and modeling. Students will experience first-hand the landscapes and research along one of the most remote and scenic highways in North America. Major themes will include permafrost and ecosystem variation along the Arctic climate gradient, hydrologic processes, and engineering solutions.
Climate combines with topography and disturbance to produce a wide variety of ecosystems in this area, from boreal forest to coastal tundra. The ecosystems are changing and these changes can, in turn, affect climate through feedbacks involving changes in albedo, permafrost, hydrology, gas exchanges with the atmosphere, and other processes.
