Participatory Mapping

Detailed Description

Indigenous Knowledge holders share knowledge during a participatory mapping workshop in Kotlik, AK. The project, The Sensitivity of Alaskan and Yukon Rivers, Fish, and Communities to Climate (The Arctic Rivers Project for short) combines data collection on Alaskan and Yukon Rivers by the USGS and community members, Indigenous knowledge, and large-scale modeling of rivers (flows, temperature, ice) and fish to improve our understanding of how Arctic rivers, ice transportation corridors, fish, and communities might be impacted by and adapt to climate change. The project is a collaboration of several USGS offices and researchers at multiple U.S. and Canadian Universities. Learn more at: . You can view the storymap at: .
