Examining records of large storms during the last 10,000 years could improve scientists’ understanding of how a changing climate affects large storm activity now and in the future. To start developing that record, researchers like UAF’s Chris Maio are searching in underwater features that have trapped sediments over thousands of years.
A new, affordable mapping technique developed by a University of Alaska Fairbanks researcher has settled a longstanding debate about which mountain is the tallest in the U.S. Arctic.
Novel adaptations discovered in hibernating animals may reveal ways to mitigate injuries associated with strokes, heart attacks and organ transplants, according to researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Duke University.
The Midnight Sun Run begins at the University of Alaska Fairbanks at 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 18.
Kelly Cates and Charlotte Regula-Whitefield, graduate students at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will head to Washington, DC, next year as 2017 Knauss Marine Policy Fellows.
New research conducted by scientists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the U.S. Geological Survey, the University of Wyoming and other institutes shows that permafrost below shallow Arctic lakes is thawing as a result of changing winter climate.
Bodies of water throughout Alaska are at risk for being inhabited by elodea, an invasive waterweed that can interfere with salmon spawning and deplete lake nutrients. New research aims to inform resource managers about the costs and benefits of managing elodea, and prioritize areas most at risk for invasion.
