This project used previously collected ShoreZone imagery to map nearly 1,600 km of coastline between Wales and Kotzebue. With additional mapping supported by the Arctic LCC and National Park Service, this effort completed the Kotzebue Sound shoreline, which now has been included in the state-wide ShoreZone dataset. The complete ShoreZone dataset for the region was used to conduct a coastal hazards analysis and create maps that identify areas undergoing rapid coastal erosion and areas that are sensitive to inundation by storm surge and sea level rise

Partners developed a simulation model to better show how various projections associated with increased marine traffic in the Bering Sea might look in the coming decades. These simulations are able to help communities and managers better understand future patterns of traffic in the Bering Sea region as a whole, and look more specifically at possible changes in key areas of concern like the Bering Strait.Following vessel activity analysis and considering vessel type, transit routes, route timing, routing speed, and ports of call, we developed a novel agent-based, spatially-explicit, baseline model of current marine vessel traffic patterns. We then applied projections about changes in traffic volume from a report by...

The Arctic LCC and National Park Service has partnered together to complete a ShoreZone imagining and mapping project for the entire coastline, lagoons inclusive, from Point Hope to Wales in Northwestern Alaska. The ShoreZone Mapping System uses oblique aerial imagery and field data from ShoreStations to classify coastline habitats based on geological and biological attributes. ShoreZone products are made available to the public through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Website.
This project connects the science and conservation capacity of federal agencies and conservation NGOs with the operational expertise of the marine vessel and oil spill response industry to identify locations in the Bering and southern Chukchi seas where oil spills threaten key species and subsistence harvest areas. It leverages significant capacity from a National Academy of Sciences (NAS) funded study being led by the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS) and Axiom Data Science (see Appendix I) as well as previous efforts led by the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands LCC, National Park Service and Defenders of Wildlife and other partners to better understand risks associated with vessel traffic. The National Park Service...

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
