Product Abstract

Climate change is likely to alter snow patterns and characteristics, impacting vegetation, hydrology, permafrost condition, wildlife, and the Alaskans who depend on these resources. Currently, many areas of western Alaska are lacking important data related to snowpack and snow conditions, including the prime winter range for the Western Arctic Caribou Herd (WACH). This project helped monitor snow conditions, which are vital to understanding and predicting landscape level impacts of climate change in western Alaska.‚Äč
