Rapid Shoreline Change Along Alaska's North Slope
Michael Brady

As a Human-Environment Geographer, I study how climate change constrains and enables resource use at the local community scale. My research emphasizes collaboration to include stakeholders in the research process for development of geographic information system (GIS)-based decision support systems. I use GIS, remote sensing, and cartographic tools to engage stakeholders in collaborative research. My dissertation research examines local community impacts of rapid shoreline change along Alaska's North Slope coast driven by sea ice loss, permafrost thaw, and sea-level rise. To enhance usability and decision relevancy for local managers, I do this research in collaboration with affected communities.The research is supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (award # 1523191)
