The goal of the Bristol Bay Regional Water Temperature Monitoring Network is to generate water temperature data which meet the information needs of individual cooperators while simultaneously generating data relevant for assessing changes in stream and lake temperatures at a regional scale. The Network’s short-term (3-5 year) objectives are to: increase data collecting capacity in the Bristol Bay region; institute the use of minimum data collection standards to produce data useful for the analysis of regional trends; compliment and leverage other monitoring efforts; update and submit site-specific metadata annually to the Alaska Online Aquatic Temperature Site project (a statewide metadata clearinghouse); and...

This plan establishes a framework for voluntary, network-based water temperature monitoring of salmon habitat in the Kodiak Archipelago, Alaska. The goals are to coordinate acquisition and availability of water temperature data that meets salmon management needs of cooperating organizations, meets statewide minimum data collection standards, and is publicly-accessible. The focus on monitoring water temperature of salmon habitat reflects recognition of its prominent influence on salmon at all life cycle stages; the importance of salmon to the economy and ecosystem of the archipelago; and the need to provide reliable time-series data to support development of proactive approaches to management of salmon in response...
Lack of complete snow cover for the past 3 winters in southwestern Alaska has forced agencies to postpone conducting moose surveys due to the likelihood of underestimating the population/lack of comparability to previous surveys. Poor snow conditions are known to lower the sightability of moose, yet, for most regions of Alaska, the variation in moose sightability during suboptimal conditions has not yet been quantified. Because scientists are predicting less snowfall in this region over the long term, research was initiated to estimate sightability correction factors (SCFc) to apply to abundance estimates.
