Extreme Citizen Science (ExCiteS)


How can Information Communication Technology (ICT) assist Arctic hunters to adapt/respond to climate change?

This research aims to develop a mobile technology grounded in the needs of Yupik and Iñupiaq coastal subsistence hunters who are adapting to the rapidly changing climate in Arctic Alaska. By combining traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) with scientific expertise this new technology will ultimately embed different ontologies and interpretations of sea-ice. The technology as well as the data management options will be designed together with the local people, reflecting their ways of hunting, learning and knowing.
