Archeology and Climate Change in Northwest Alaska
National Park Service Climate Change and Archeology webinar series (2014)

Abstract

Archeology can provide a unique long-term baseline for social and environmental challenges associated with modern climate change. Anderson will discuss how new data on past settlement patterns and social networks in northwest Alaska can be used to evaluate and refine existing models of late Holocene human-environment interaction in the Arctic, and to inform contemporary climate change research in the north. On-going efforts to assess and mitigate the impact of rapid climate change on arctic archeological sites will also be discussed.
