Gathering scientific results and audio from wide-spread scientists can be difficult, but Amanda Compton is a professional on a mission. Her interest and background in science aside, as a professional independent reporter she always gets her story. She undertook this project with Arctic Eis support, primarily through Alaska Community Coastal Impact Assistance Program support of public outreach opportunities. Her product includes a four part mini series on a our project. The stories will be broadcast throughout Alaska on public radio, including locations in: Juneau, Barrow, Ketchikan, Dillingham, Bethel, Haines, Kodiak and Sitka.

In the marine environment of Arctic Alaska, the seasonal presence (or absence) of sea ice influences everything: weather systems, food webs, migration patterns, human cultures, and resource development. This televised production with collaboration of KTOO-Juneau 360North Productions and the Arctic Eis Project, scientists from NOAA, UAF, and the U.S. Fish And Wildlife Service share findings and thoughts on 2 years of unprecedented research in the Northern Bering and Chukchi Seas.
Particpants included KTOO’s Matt Miller, Arctic Eis Lead PI Dr. Franz Mueter (UAF), Eis Surface Trawl and Salmon PI Dr. Ed Farley (NOAA), Eis Seabird PI Dr. Kathy Kuletz (USFWS), and Eis snow crab scientist and Ph.D student Ms. Lauren Divine (UAF). The discussion included focused presentations by each scientist, followed by a several questions from Matt Miller on the state of the Arctic and progress of our research. Additionally, an audience question and answer session was recorded after the on-air conclusion.
