(June 14, 2017) SERDP and ESTCP, financial partners and technical contributors to ITRC's guidance development efforts, offer free webinars to promote the transfer of innovative, cost-effective and sustainable solutions from sponsored research and technology demonstrations. An upcoming SERDP and ESTCP webinar on Thursday, June 29 will detail results from Department of Defense research on future vulnerabilities to Alaskan ecosystems and tools for permafrost assessment. First, Dr. Michelle Mack, a professor in the Center for Ecosystem Science and Society and the Department of Biological Sciences at Northern Arizona University, will present the findings of a research project to determine links among fire, soils, permafrost and vegetation succession, and also to forecast landscape change in response to projected variations in climate, fire regime and fire management. Next, Mr. Kevin Bjella, a Research Civil Engineer at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), will present results from subsurface geophysical mapping demonstrations of permafrost to provide more resilient infrastructure in cold regions.
