Encountering Environmental Hazards on Alaska’s Coasts
- Free website
The Encountering Environmental Hazards on Alaska's Coasts website provides information on environmental issues faced by Alaska coastal communities, and tells what residents should do and whom to contact when they encounter something unusual. Reporting hazards immediately can help scientists and agencies monitor changes in marine ecosystems, protect the marine resources Alaskans rely on, and minimize damage to the environment. Topics include earthquakes and tsunamis, harmful algal blooms, PSP, marine mammal strandings, seabird mortality, hazardous spills, invasive species, ocean acidification, and rising ocean temperatures.
