USGS booth at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium

January 2023 (approx.)

Detailed Description

The USGS Alaska Science Center is a leader in marine ecosystems science with collaborations and projects that cover topics from ocean bottom-dwelling invertebrates – a source of food for Pacific walrus, sea otter, and marine birds – to polar bears, an apex predator in the Arctic. Each January, the Alaska Marine Science Symposium takes place in Anchorage, Alaska. The meeting provides a forum for sharing recent marine science information from the Gulf of Alaska, Aleutian Islands and Bering Sea, and Arctic marine regions off the coast of Alaska. The USGS booth at the Symposium provides information on recent and ongoing research by the Alaska Science Center and its many collaborators.
