Brian Fadely Receives Larus Prize
Brian Fadely, a graduate student in marine science and limnology
received the Larus Prize for best student presentation at the Arctic
Science Conference held in September 1995. The title of his presentation was
Long-term Body Condition Changes in Prince William Sound and Gulf of
Alaska Harbor Seals (see article elsewhere in this newsletter). The Larus Prize provides a
paid trip to the national AAAS meeting. Honorable mention was received
by Dave Veazey for his paper entitled Chemical Composition and Number
Distributions of Alaskan Continental Aerosol,
and by Jay Gulledge for his paper entitled 1993:
A Surrogate for the Effects of Climate Warming on
Taiga CO2 Efflux.
LAII Science Workshop
In November 1995, the Arctic System Science (ARCSS) Land
-Atmosphere-Ice Interactions (LAII) Flux Study investigators met in
Seattle to discuss project integration, data synthesis, and planning for the next phase of the Flux Study. All LAII investigators will be assembling in Seattle on February 22-24 to report results and achievements and to
engage in future research and logistics planning. At this workshop,
the LAII Science Steering Committee will discuss the production of an
updated LAII science plan with participants.
Climate Change Impacts on Alaska Workshop
The Center sponsored a workshop following the 1995 Arctic Science
Conference entitled: "Preparing for an Uncertain Future: The Impacts of
Short and Long-Term Climate Change on Alaska." This workshop, co
-chaired by UAF Emeritus Professor Juan Roederer and Commissioner John
Shively of the Department of Natural Resources, was attended by about 50
people. Working groups prepared four position papers on climate change in Alaska and its effects on the physical and biological environment and
economy of Alaska. The policy implications of these effects were
considered and a number of recommendations made. The workshop
papers will be published and distributed in February 1996.
