Informed decision making through research and education
Why We Do It
Alaska’s coastal environments are some of the most dynamic in the world, and are an incredible place to carry out research and education activities. Scientifically, measuring these changes and understanding their impacts on the natural environment and coastal communities is a fascinating research topic. When modern humans and their infrastructure are considered, the importance of this research and education is emphasized as it can be used to identify hazards and advance coastal change literacy. Through this, coastal communities can increase their ability to mitigate and adapt to rapid environmental change.
