Fish Creek Watershed

Establishing a process baseline for fish habitat in beaded streams and connected lakes in an area of the National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska (NPR-A) scheduled for petroleum development. This involves monitoring stream discharge, temperature, and water quality in four catchments where development is planned and a reference catchment. Lake and weather monitoring, geomorphic mapping, and snow and ice surveys are also part of this study. Research has additionally expanded to the entire watershed of Fish, Judy, and Ublutuoch systems to understand watershed hydrologic responses to climate change across physiographic gradients of the Arctic Coastal Plain of Alaska.
