Full Project Title Project Summary Project ID: WA2012_23 Lead Investigator: Michael Brubaker, Alaska Native Tribal Health ConsortiumCollaborators: James Berner, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium; Kevin Zweifel, Norton Sound Health Corporation; Anahma Shannon, Kawerak, Inc.; Paul Eaton, Maniilaq Association; John Chase, Northwest Arctic BoroughProject Duration: 2012 - 2014 No one has better knowledge, and opportunity to document, how coastal storms affect the coast than the people who live in coastal communities. By training the network of Local Environmental Observers (LEOs) to collect coastal storm data in Western Alaska, we improve local capacity to engage in coastal observations. In addition, this project builds on the climate change vulnerability assessments performed in Bristol Bay, expanding the assessment process to Northwestern Alaska, and prioritizing communities for climate vulnerability assessments. Through these efforts, Alaska's climate change surveillance system is strengthened, understanding about climate vulnerability is increased, and partnerships to address impact are expanded.
