Coastal erosion monitoring

Stephen Escarzaga hikes along the coast of the Chukchi sea. He is part of the Barrow Area Information Database crew, project that aims to protect Alaska’s coastal areas through wise management of resource development while expanding capacity for informed, multi-stakeholder environmental decision making on Ukpeaġvik Iñupiat Corporation lands in the coastal zone near Barrow, Alaska. The BAID team surveys 62 miles of coastline by foot over the course of summer to measure coastal erosion and retreat along the Chukchi and Beaufort seas.
