Abstract

The permafrost module of the Alaska Integrated Ecosystem Model (AIEM) will be used to establish several high spatial resolution (1km x 1km) and very high resolution (30m x 30m) scenarios of changes in permafrost characteristics in the Alaskan Arctic in response to projected climate change and northern infrastructure development. Impact of these changes in permafrost on northern Alaskan ecosystems and infrastructure will be assessed and regional maps of the possible impacts will be developed.
