Where We Work

The ACGL conducts research and education activities across the State of Alaska. We engage with remote villages to establish community-based erosion monitoring sites and train citizen-scientists to accurately collect data. The ACGL also collects sediment cores in some of the most remote locations in the world including coastal, riverine, and aquatic environments. On the UAF campus, interns and graduate students help to process and analyze the data and produce products for research projects, clients, and partners.


We travel to remote field sites on some incredibly small airplanes making every trip a real adventure

Students use their knowledge of coastal changes to analyze sediment cores taken out on location.

We work with coastal communities to develop citizen-scientist erosion monitoring programs.

Students use many different machines to determine coastal processes such as this one, the laser diffraction particle size analyzer.
