Alaska’s distinct environment makes it ripe for scientific research. Being home to a vast array of ice such as permafrost, glaciers, and sea ice makes Alaska an optimal location to learn about the effects of climate change on communities and the businesses operating within the Arctic. The state’s diverse flora and fauna offer researchers and science enthusiasts a multitude of topics to study.

Petroleum under the North Slope and methane under Cook Inlet have both potentials: productive energy from hydrogen and destructive pollution from carbon. In a decarbonizing global market, Alaska needs a way to separate the good from the bad.
