Alaska Arctic Observatory & Knowledge Hub (AAOKH)

The Local Observations database was developed to record, archive, and share indigenous sea ice knowledge and expertise. The information contained in this database was collected through the dedication of Inupiaq and Yupik sea ice experts along the northern and western coasts of Alaska. The goal of this collaboration is to preserve and pass on local and traditional knowledge of sea ice and its use knowledge and documenting local sea ice change and how that change is affecting community and cultural activities. The data collection may provide a better understanding of sea ice and its use, local sea ice change and how that change is affecting community and cultural activities.
