UAF unmanned aircraft program expands to Iceland!!

The University of Alaska Fairbanks has partnered with UAS Iceland to expand unmanned aircraft operations in Iceland in early 2014.

The collaboration with UAS Iceland, via UAF’s Alaska Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration, will support arctic science, including glacier studies, volcano monitoring, marine mammal research and environmental observations. The agreement also has the potential to support mapping efforts and search and rescue missions.

Scientist of the Month: Soumik Basu

As an IARC PhD candidate, Soumik Basu uses climate models to study changes and variability in extratropical storms in a warming climate. As he works to develop his own research and scholarship, Basu also benefits the IARC and UAF traditions of leading-edge science, especially in the areas of climate dynamics and projections.

IARC’s Publications team interviewed Basu recently about his research, background, and interests.
