Annual science event to be held in December

Every December, the council sponsors an evening of presentations by scientists conducting research in areas of council interest. The event is an initiative of the council’s Scientific Advisory Committee. SAC, as it’s known, ensures council projects are based on the best available scientific information.

Topics in the past have included humpback whale research, the council’s green crab monitoring program, the effects of oil and dispersants on salmon and other species, ocean waves, Columbia Glacier, and much more.

This year, Science Night will be held December 5, 2013 at the Hilton hotel in downtown Anchorage. The event is open to the public.

A list of this year’s presentations will be posted on the Science Night page when it is available.
