Alaska Monitoring and Assessment Program Surveys

AKMAP has sampled marine and fresh water resources across Alaska since 2002. The first wetland monitoring occurred in 2011 on the Arctic Coastal Plain. There have also been two efforts at harvesting historic data, the Advance Monitoring Initiative focused on Arctic marine waters and the Southeast Data Mining effort focused on freshwater resources in Southeast Alaska. Please check the map or project tables below for more information on any of the projects. The green or blue polygons in the map represent project areas, click in the area you’re interested in to find out more information.
