Understanding the modes of the sea-ice thickness distribution: Processes and variability

University of Washington/Polar Science Center (UW-PSC) - The sea-ice thickness distribution (ITD) is fundamental to understanding the heat, mass and freshwater budgets of the Arctic Ocean, plays important roles in climate feedbacks, and exerts strong control on regional primary productivity, marine navigation and surface operations. Estimates of ITD based on observations in the perennial ice zone (PIZ) nearly always exhibit a prominent mode at some...

Updates to the Fault Tree Approach to Oil-Spill Occurrence Estimators for the Chukchi and Beaufort Sea Planning Areas (AK-05-x12)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The OCS spill occurrence rates used in MMS NEPA analyses are based on historical platform and pipeline crude oil-spill rates, almost entirely from the Gulf of Mexico OCS. For the Alaska OCS Region Arctic planning areas, the MMS has recently incorporated a fault-tree approach which incorporates 1) differences in oil-spill occurrence factors between the Arctic and Gulf of Mexico OCS and 2)...

Upper Kuparuk Watershed Sites Information - WERC

Water and Environmental Research Center - UAF (WERC) - The Upper Kuparuk watershed is located on the North Slope of Alaska, at the foothills of the Brooks Range (68 38'N, 149 24'W). The Upper Kuparuk River watershed (drainage area 142 km2) drains the highest and steepest terrain in the entire Kuparuk River watershed. Precipitation is spatially quite variable here because of orographic effects and probably the closeness of the higher mountains...

Use of Polymers to Recover Viscous Oil from Unconventional Reservoirs (DE-NT0006555)

US Department of Energy (DOE) - The goal of this three-year research project is to develop methods using water soluble polymers to recover viscous oil from unconventional reservoirs (e.g., on Alaska’s North Slope). This project will identify a wider range of conditions (especially regarding the limits of oil viscosity) for application of polymer flooding. It should specifically open opportunities for increased oil recovery...
