Hello and welcome to our blog! We have created this page so that you can stay up to date on research taking place in and around Barrow and different community opportunities and activities.
A little bit about us:
The Barrow Arctic Science Consortium (BASC) is a not-for-profit organization based in Barrow, Alaska that is dedicated to the encouragement of research and educational activities pertaining to Alaska’s North Slope and the adjacent portions of the Arctic Ocean. As part of BASC’s mission to support science we work with every federal agency that has a presence, or wants to have a presence in the U.S. Arctic. We also work with our sister organization in Russia, the Chukotka Science Support Group, and with numerous international schools and research institutes. With local connections, experience and knowledge, BASC provides logistical support in the field, assistance with permitting issues and helps facilitate outreach efforts for researchers.
A primary focus of BASC is to bring together community members and scientists, with a special emphasis on linking up students and researchers. As a part of this effort, this blog will be updated regularly with current, locally relevant news and information.
