Objectives

The USGS Yukon River Basin (YRB) investigations are founded on simultaneous process-to-landscape collaborations among USGS paleolimnology, hydrology, biogeochemistry biology, remote sensing, and biogeochemical modeling groups and on essential partnerships with NRC Canada, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, University of Alaska, National Science Foundation and several USGS mission areas. The YRB investigations address over thirty core research questions that contribute to USGS Global Change Science Strategy goals. Our specific goals within the Yukon River Basin Project focus on understanding terrestrial responses and feedbacks to climate change phenomenon. The goals of my team include:
