Landscape Science

Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) webpage for Landscape Science research in Alaska. Landscape Science at the USGS Alaska Science Center focuses on the integration of field studies, remote sensing observations, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and modeling to characterize and document landscape changes occurring in terrestrial, aquatic, and coastal ecosystems in Alaska and other northern high latitude regions. These projects provide objective and timely data, information, and research findings about boreal and permafrost influenced landscapes and disturbance regimes to Federal, State, and local resource managers and the public to support sound decisions regarding natural resources, natural hazards, and ecosystems in Alaska.
