The ABSI LCC has completed a Strategic Science Plan to guide our activities for the next five years. A draft of the plan was available for public review and comment through September 21, 2013. The final version of the plan is now available for download.
Alaska is an enormous state with few options to access remote areas of scientific research interest. Expensive and inconvenient travel often means that individual projects devote an inordinate amount of resources simply to get out in the field. AOOS, in partnership with the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands Landscape Conservation Cooperative (ABSI LCC), has launched the Alaska Platform of Opportunity Portal(APOP), an interactive map-based portal that displays information about upcoming research cruises in Alaska waters.
If you're planning any research cruises for 2014, please contact us to discuss serving that your information through APOP. The ABSI LCC Staff is prepared to assist with geospatial processing, and will provide you with copies of GIS data layers for your own use.
