Choose any of these platforms to submit your observations.
GLOBE Observer is a NASA-sponsored citizen science app that allows volunteers to submit observations and contribute to the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) community. The collected data track changes in the environment in support of Earth system science research, and interpret NASA and other satellite data.
The Indigenous Knowledge Social Network SIKU is a mobile app and web platform by and for Inuit which provides tools and services for ice safety, language preservation and weather.
Submit river and lake freeze up photos.
Submit your Community-based Monitoring Team observations of snow and ice depth.
Why do we need your help observing freshwater ice in Alaska?
more eyes (plus cameras, augers, and experience) out on ice provides a better view of current and changing river and lake ice
ice thickness and snow depth, photographs, and even stories help make better river forecasts, inform safe travel for others, and build a record of current conditions
your participation in science helps strengthen public engagement and education
How will observations and data you share benefit communities, science, and public safety?
inform travelers, subsistence fishers and hunters, or recreationists of potential hazards
provide key “ground-truth” for satellites and models used in forecasting and change detection
contribute to a record of current conditions that can be compared to the past and inform the future
engage broader communities in the wonders of ice and Alaska winters
