SESSION POSTPONED – AFE 2021 Youth Track: Fresh Eyes on Ice: Investigating Changes in River and Lake Ice Across Alaska
February 9 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Learning about freshwater ice and how it is changing comes at many levels and from many sources. The Fresh Eyes on Ice project is focuses on advancing knowledge on ice for the Arctic science community, K-12 students and teachers, and Alaskan communities who are faced with preparing for changing ice conditions. The new knowledge of freshwater ice produced by this project is created through partnerships and collaboration across cultures, generations, academic disciplines, and communities. Collaborators contributing to the science ideas, data collection, and analysis include K-12 students and teachers, local ice experts from tribal, state, local, or federal agencies, local river travelers and elders, and University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists and education researchers. These collaborators all offer “fresh eyes on ice.”
