    Who Uses the Land?

    Who Uses the Land?

    The earliest evidence of land use harkens back to the Bering Land Bridge, when the first human inhabitants of this continent crossed over from Asia over 10,000 years ago. This land use continues to today, with many different groups competing for rights to use the land. The various types of usage have not always been beneficial.

  • Bering Land Bridge National Preserve

    Inupiaq Sea Ice Language

    Inupiaq Sea Ice Language

    Bering Land Bridge National Preserve protects an expanse of land remaining from the prehistoric “land bridge,” also known as Beringia, which spanned from modern-day Asia to North America over 12,000 years ago. The bridge was up to 1,000 miles wide, and was a land mass that allowed for the exchange of human, flora, and fauna populations between continents. In this unit, students explore Beringia—the movement of living things, geology and special places inside the Bering Land Bridge Preserve.

    Wind Dynamics and Forests

    Wind Dynamics and Forests

    Changes in vegetation from human activity have led to significant climatic consequences. How does this happen, and what types of interactions are taking place? Students will set up a model forest to observe changes and their causes.

    The Missing Link: Food Webs on the Seward Peninsula

    The Missing Link: Food Webs on the Seward Peninsula

    Every living creature is part of a bigger web. Each creature in a particular ecosystem (or area) is dependent on all the other creatures in that ecosystem in many different ways. When one piece of the web gets removed, the whole ecosystem is altered.

    Erosion: Washing Away the Earth

    Erosion: Washing Away the Earth

    Erosion can be a major issue. It is caused by a number of factors, both manmade and natural. The effects of erosion are very evident on Arctic coastal villages that are experiencing storm surges and no longer have the added protection of longer lasting sea ice. Research indicates that both the storm surges and lost of sea ice are the result of climate change.

    Things are Heating Up

    Things are Heating Up

    Energy is transferred through three different methods: convection, conduction and radiation. These three methods impact the earth’s temperature and also how weather patterns affect us.
