Detailed Description

Rapidly changing glaciers in Alaska demonstrate tight physical and ecological linkages with downstream ecosystems that bridge the icefield-to-ocean continuum. This talk will highlight recent efforts of an Alaska Climate Science Center supported research project to better understand these linkages, including how glaciers influence hydrology and oceanography as well as the biogeochemistry and ecology of freshwater and near-shore marine ecosystems that receive glacial runoff.
