Tracking Pacific Walrus: Expedition to the Shrinking Chukchi Sea Ice
http://gallery.usgs.gov/videos/600 Summer ice retreat in the Chukchi Sea between Alaska and Russia is a significant climate change impact affecting Pacific Walruses, which are being considered for listing as a threatened species. This twelve minute video follows walruses in their summer sea ice habitat and shows how USGS biologists use satellite radio tags to track their movements and behavior. The information identifies areas of special importance to walruses during sparse summer sea ice and as human presence increases in the region from oil drilling and activities such as shipping and tourism now possible with less ice.

The emerging Arctic Ocean is defined by less sea ice and larger expanses of open water in summer. Waves have a larger role to play in this regime. Oceanographer Jim Thomson led a 32-day research cruise on the Beaufort and Chukchi seas in October–November — the season of maximum open water, strongest storms, and potentially largest waves — to study the air-sea-ice interactions and feedbacks during the seasonal sea ice regrowth and advance. The team encountered several storm events, observed pancake ice everywhere, and discovered the unexpected.

Arctic Atmospheric Circulation, Freshwater and Sea Surface Height
NASA 2012: The transpolar drift (purple arrows) is a dominant circulation feature in the Arctic Ocean that carries freshwater runoff (red arrows) from rivers in Russia across the North Pole and south towards Greenland. Under changing atmospheric conditions, emergent circulation patterns (blue arrows) drive freshwater runoff east towards Canada, resulting in freshening of Arctic water in the Canada Basin. Understanding this more complex pathway will help scientists make better predictions about the Arctic's response to climate change. https://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/earth20120104.html Arctic sea surface height variability and change from satellite radar altimetry and GRACE, 2003–2014 http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2015JC011579/full NASA | Russian Runoff Freshens Canadian Arctic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8diuqAI6YA Satellites detect abundance of fresh water in the Arctic http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Observing_the_Earth/Space_for_our_climate/Satellites_detect_abundance_of_fresh_water_in_the_Arctic Steric Height https://sealevel.nasa.gov/understanding-sea-level/key-indicators/steric-height

Arctic Oceanography from the Sky
The Arctic Heat Open Science Project (http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/arctic-heat) deployed a series of experimental floats and other instruments from a specially-outfitted NOAA Twin Otter aircraft in June 2016. Read more about each instrument shown in the video below. ALAMO = Air Launched Autonomous Micro Observer Launched from an aircraft, ALAMO floats are programmed to complete four or more profiles daily, generally recording depth, temperature, salinity, and position. Four floats were deployed in the June 2016 deployment period; two in the Chukchi Sea and two in the Beaufort Sea. Along with the experimental ALAMO floats a number of traditional atmospheric and oceanographic probes were launched from the NOAA Twin Otter for the first time: AXBT = Aircraft Expendable Bathythermograph An oceanographic instrument deployed from an aircraft, an AXBT takes a single temperature/depth profile as it drops from the ocean's surface to the seafloor. 7 AXBTs were deployed in this series in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas. AXCTD = Aircraft Expendable Conductivity-Temperature-Depth Profiler A profiling instrument deployed from an aircraft, an AXCTD takes a single profile from surface to seafloor, recording temperature and salinity versus depth. 5 AXCTDs were deployed in this series in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas. Also deployed, but not pictured: dropsondes Launched via aircraft at higher altitudes, dropsondes collect an atmospheric profile as they fall to the sea surface, recording position, altitude, temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, and wind alamspeed/direction. Dropsondes collected similar data as a weather balloon.

Arctic Spring
Something surprising is happening in the Chukchi Sea north of Alaska. In 2011 a team of scientists aboard the Coast Guard icebreaker Healy discovered a massive springtime plankton bloom--one of the largest ever observed in the world's ocean. But what was really startling is that the bloom occurred beneath one meter of ice, in conditions previously thought to be unconducive to plankton growth. In 2014, scientists returned to the region to study the phenomenon more closely and to better understand how rapidly changing conditions in the region might affect the delicately balanced ecosystem of the Arctic Ocean.

Climate Change affecting Barrow | North Coast of Alaska
http://www.YouTube.com/user/BourgeoisPhotography www.BourgeoisPhotography.com I don't know if Barack Obama will actually visit the top of the world, but if he did, this is what he would see... is this global warming? climate change? I personally don't know how true global warming or climate change or whatever you want to call it is... BUT what I can tell you and show you through this thoughtful video that I shot, is that the city/village of Barrow, Alaska, the United States most northern city, is living at the edge of the Chukchi Sea and Beaufort Sea in the Arctic Ocean and there appears to be opportunity here for concern. Through this thoughtful video I put together, I wanted to give YOU the viewer a chance to see what Barack Obama will see if he TRULY comes to visit the high Arctic of Alaska. I live here and I can see this effort to keep the ocean out every day... The day that I filmed this the tide was not exceptionally high, thank goodness. The Inupiat people have been living at the top of the world for thousands of years and living peacefully here with nature... It now appears that some of the oldest homes and structures are getting dangerously close to becoming one with the Chukchi Sea and the Beaufort Sea along with the full on Arctic Ocean here in Barrow. Take a look at this compelling video and tell me what you think... where your thoughts lead you. It is purposefully shot in long shot pieces to give you time to reflect on what you see and come to your own conclusions... I personally don't have an opinion one way or another, I have been living in Barrow for 8 months and now living in Alaska total 17 years. I can tell you that I have had an elder here tell me that 50 feet of coastline has vanished in the last 10 years. Period. All I can comment on is the obvious signs that I see the people of this region doing to protect the shore, their land, and their heritage. Is it global warming or climate change along coastal Alaska? President Barack Obama needs to see this video and decide if he should come here. We SEEM to be on the front lines of global warming and climate change.

It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Alaska is the 4th least populous and the least densely populated of the 50 United States. Approximately half of Alaska's 722,718 residents live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska was purchased from Russia on March 30, 1867, for $7.2 million ($120 million adjusted for inflation) at approximately two cents per acre ($4.74/km²). The land went through several administrative changes before becoming an organized (or incorporated) territory on May 11, 1912, and the 49th state of the U.S. on January 3, 1959. The name "Alaska" (Аляска) was already introduced in the Russian colonial period, when it was used only for the peninsula and is derived from the Aleut alaxsxaq, meaning "the mainland" or, more literally, "the object towards which the action of the sea is directed". It is also known as Alyeska, the "great land", an Aleut word derived from the same root... Alaska has a longer coastline than all the other U.S. states combined. It is the only non-contiguous U.S. state on continental North America; about 500 miles (800 km) of British Columbia (Canada) separates Alaska from Washington state. Alaska is thus an exclave of the United States. It is technically part of the continental U.S., but is often not included in colloquial use; Alaska is not part of the contiguous U.S., often called "the Lower 48". The capital city, Juneau, is situated on the mainland of the North American continent, but is not connected by road to the rest of the North American highway system. The state is bordered by the Yukon Territory and British Columbia in Canada, to the east, the Gulf of Alaska and the Pacific Ocean to the south, the Bering Sea, Bering Strait, and Chukchi Sea to the west and the Arctic Ocean to the north. Alaska's territorial waters touch Russia's territorial waters in the Bering Strait, as the Russian Big Diomede Island and Alaskan Little Diomede Island are only 3 miles (4.8 km) apart. With the extension of the Aleutian Islands into the eastern hemisphere, it is technically both the westernmost and easternmost state in the United States, as well as also being the northernmost... William H. Seward, the United States Secretary of State, negotiated the Alaska Purchase (also known as Seward's Folly) with the Russians in 1867 for $7.2 million. Alaska was loosely governed by the military initially, and was administered as a district starting in 1884, with a governor appointed by the president of the United States, as well as a district court headquartered in Sitka... Starting in the 1890s and stretching in some places to the early 1910s, gold rushes in Alaska and the nearby Yukon Territory brought thousands of miners and settlers to Alaska. Alaska was officially incorporated as an organized territory in 1912. Alaska's capital, which had been in Sitka until the 1900 legislation mandated its transfer to Juneau... The 2007 gross state product was $44.9 billion, 45th in the nation. Its per capita personal income for 2007 was $40,042, ranking 15th in the nation. The oil and gas industry dominates the Alaskan economy, with more than 80% of the state's revenues derived from petroleum extraction. Alaska's main export product (excluding oil and natural gas) is seafood, primarily salmon, cod, Pollock and crab. Agriculture represents only a fraction of the Alaskan economy... Employment is primarily in government and industries such as natural resource extraction, shipping, and transportation. Military bases are a significant component of the economy in both Fairbanks and Anchorage. Federal subsidies are also an important part of the economy, allowing the state to keep taxes low. Its industrial outputs are crude petroleum, natural gas, coal, gold, precious metals, zinc and other mining, seafood processing, timber and wood products...

2002 Sea Ice Webcam Time-lapse in Barrow, Alaska
This is a time-lapse of the web cam located North of Barrow, AK at NARL, overlooking landfast ice in the Arctic Ocean (Chukchi Sea). One photo per day, spanning the entire annual cycle including sea ice drift and growth (October), and decay (May/June), and break-up (July). Note that young ice formed on October 16 sheltered by ice drifting in day before. A good part of the landfast ice broke out around March 19; while it is common for ice to break out before summer, usually it does not happen this close to the shore as there tend to be grounded pressure ridges to protect it. Melt ponds formed around May 21, 2002, which is comparatively early at this location; they refreeze and get covered by snow later in May. Time-lapse spans September 2001 until August 2002. The camera is located atop the UIC Science Center at NARRL, 5 miles NE of Barrow, facing approximately NW. See http://www.gi.alaska.edu/snowice/sea-lake-ice/barrow_webcam.html for today's sea ice webcam image in downtown Barrow.

The wildlife of Alaska is diverse and abundant. This article gives information on a selection of the best-known animal species in Alaska. [Documentary] Watch more documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgOlZVG2RZs&list=PLTEq-I2WHEVgLvnFhFdBs43-rlm6uCGN- Brown bear Brown bear at Katmai National Park. Alaska contains about 98% of the U.S. brown bear population and 70% of the total North American population. An estimated 30,000 brown bears live in Alaska. Of that number, about 1,450 are harvested by hunters yearly. [Documentary] Black bear The black bear is much smaller than the brown bear. They are found in larger numbers on the mainland of Alaska, but are not found on the islands off of the Gulf of Alaska and the Seward Peninsula. Black bears have been seen in Alaska in a few different shades of colors such as black, brown, cinnamon, and even a rare blue shade. They are widely scattered over Alaska, and pose more of a problem to humans because they come in close contact with them on a regular basis. They are considered a nuisance because they frequently stroll through local towns, camps, backyards, and streets because of their curiosity and easy food sources such as garbage. Black bears are big dangerous animals that attack when bothered or hungry. As many as 100,000 black bears live in Alaska. Polar bear Polar bears on the Beaufort Sea coast. Alaska's polar bear populations are concentrated along its Arctic coastlines. In the winter, they are most common in the Kuskokwim Delta, St. Matthew Island, and at the southernmost portion of St. Lawrence Island. During the summer months, they migrate to the coastlines of the Arctic Ocean and the Chukchi Sea. There are two main polar bear populations in Alaska. The Chukchi population is found off in the western part of Alaska near the Wrangell Islands, and the Beaufort Sea population is located near Alaska’s North Slope.

Sea Ice Floating Away | Arctic Ocean | Barrow Alaska
Please share & subscribe! YOU MAY NEVER PASS THIS WAY AGAIN.... Right now the Arctic Ocean sea ice is melting away for the summer. I set up my gopro camera to get a timelapse to give you a small idea of this amazing yearly event. We get to see neat events here living at the top of the world. And this is surely one of THE most amazing. I love watching mother nature do her work. One day there will nearly no ice here... then the winds will kick up and the next day... the shore will be full of freshly pushed in ice. The last few days this ice has been an incredibly deep blue color. Truly an amazing thing to behold in person. Blessed I do feel to behold this in person. Yes, ma'am. Hope you will enjoy this small dot of time with mother nature. :)
Can the Environment and Technology Coexist?
Filmed Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 2:30pm Is drilling for Arctic oil worth the risk to the environment? America's Arctic Ocean, the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas, is central to life in coastal communities, providing important habitat for countless species of wildlife including polar bears, walrus, ice seals, bowhead whales, beluga whales, eiders and more. Today this national treasure is in not just threatened by oil companies but also is at the front lines of climate change. No place has potentially more to lose as a result of development than America's Arctic. Leah Donahey, Alaska Wilderness League Program Director for Arctic Ocean and Reserve will present the threats and risks facing the Arctic Ocean from climate change and drilling. Grass Roots Activism and America's Red Rock Wilderness Act America's Red Rock Wilderness Act proposes to add over 9 million acres of the most unique and iconic desert landscapes of the U.S. to the National Wilderness Preservation System. It was written by citizens and includes an exhaustive, detailed and survey with over 70,000 mapped photographs. Professor Lori Clark will share her experiences working as a citizen activist on the land inventory and in her roles as a grass roots organizer, lobbyist, and advocate for wilderness preservation. Questions and discussion will follow. Also, there will be drawings for many giveaways including stuffed animals, carrying kits, water bottles, and utility bags from the Alaska Wilderness League.

Amazing video of walrus island in the Chukchi Sea..dnt miss it..
Extraordinary pictures capture scores of walruses crammed onto a chunk of ice floating in the Chukchi Sea off the coast of Alaska. American photographer Steven Kazlowski said he was 'amazed' to see the mammals crowded onto the iceberg surrounded by open water. He said the island provided a safe resting place for the creatures, in between foraging for shrimp, crabs and molluscs on the sea floor.

MITgcm on Ice
Temperature in the Arctic region has been rising at approximately twice the global average rate in the past 100 years (Solomon et al., Technical Summary, IPCC 2007). To understand the effect of warming on the Arctic sea ice and ocean circulation, An Nguyen and colleagues simulated a data-constrained coupled ocean and sea ice state estimate at high horizontal resolution. One area of great interest is the Chukchi Sea where the source of an important water mass, the Western Arctic upper halocline, is formed. The upper halocline, a layer of high vertical salinity gradient and near-freezing temperature, resides at depths 50-200m and insulates the surface sea ice from the heat stored in the Atlantic Water at depths below 300m. Thus an understanding of its origin, ventilation, and variability can improve our understanding in the Arctic Ocean circulation and in the halocline's contribution to sea ice changes. In this video interview, polar researcher An Nguyen presents the results of a recently published ocean and sea-ice modeling study of the Chukchi Sea she co-authored with researchers at JPL. You can find out more about An Nguyen, this project, and the MIT General Circulation Model, or MITgcm, at http://mitgcm.org/2012/08/05/mitgcm-on-ice. Video by Helen Hill
