Distributed Biological Observatory - Northern Chukchi
Integrated Study

Documenting the changes of the Pacific-Arctic ecosystem

The overall goal of DBO-NCIS is to document and understand ongoing changes to the Pacific-Arctic ecosystem in light of changing physical drivers. In conjunction with the DBO program, we aim to elucidate the physical-biological links that result in ecologically important hotspots in the Northern Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas.
