UAF researchers to present at AGU press briefing
Date:12/16/2008

University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers Igor Semiletov and Donald "Skip" Walker will be among four panelists at a press briefing, The Arctic in Flux: New Insights from the International Polar Year, Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 9 a.m. Pacific Standard Time at the American Geophysical Union fall meeting at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

The briefing will present early results from a range of studies conducted during the International Polar Year, an international event focusing research efforts and public attention on the Earth's polar regions.

Semiletov will speak on recent discoveries of new methane seeps along the East Siberian Arctic Shelf. Semiletov is a research associate professor at the UAF International Arctic Research Center. Walker will speak on his Greening of the Arctic project, which has documented an increase in vegetation along the arctic coasts. Walker is a professor at the UAF Institute of Arctic Biology.

Other panelists include Julienne Stroeve of the University of Colorado, Boulder and Marco Tedesco of the City College of New York, New York.

Additional information on Walker and Semiletov's projects is attached.

Arctic greening linked to retreating sea ice

An interdisciplinary group of scientists led by Donald "Skip" Walker of the Institute of Arctic Biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks has strongly linked sea ice changes to changes in Arctic land-surface temperatures and increased tundra greenness.
