ARCUS color logoThe Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) will host a three-part series of webinar workshops addressing coastal erosion on the North Slope of Alaska over the next several weeks. 

This series of webinar-based workshops will include presentations and discussions of how coastal erosion on the North Slope of Alaska impacts local communities, the best practices for a long-term observing (LTO) network that could contribute to community planning and response, and how citizens can contribute to monitoring erosion along their coast. General questions for workshop discussions include: 

- What are the best practices for a long-term observing network so that it contributes to community understanding and planned response to coastal erosion?
- What are the best strategies for informing and engaging the community?

The remaining two webinar series includes:

"Coastal Erosion Workshop for Alaska's North Slope: Shoreline: Changes and Weather"
Date: Tuesday, 28 October 2014 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am (AKDT)
Speaker: Ann Gibbs, U.S. Geological Survey

"Coastal Erosion Workshop for Alaska's North Slope: Monitoring Basics"
Date: Thursday, 30 October 2014 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am (AKDT)
