Teacher-At-Sea - July 2018
The research project that I will be apart of is known as the NGA-LTER (Northern Gulf of Alaska - Long Term Ecological Research). The program is being funded by several organizations - National Science Foundation (NSF), North Pacific Research Board (NPRB), Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), and U. Of Alaska - Fairbanks.
The program’s goal is to assess the health and resiliency of the Northern Gulf of Alaska to climate change. Research will look at this precious ecosystem on a holistic level - physically, chemically and biologically. Research will be conducted by a variety of researchers in several disciplines.
