The Permafrost Pathways Project with the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. will present for Arctic Congress 2024. Part of the Defense Resiliency Platform Against Extreme Cold Weather, this presentation documents the 3-D visualization and measurement of features in the CRREL permafrost tunnel in Fox, Alaska, using a Matterport Pro-3 LiDAR camera.

This exciting presentation, led by Dr. Olaf Kuhlke is part of Session: 2.1.2 Permafrost Thaw, Infrastructure and Indigenous Communities: Lessons from Alaska, will take place on May 31, 2024 from 11:00 to 12:30 in Hall Two at the Fram Cinema. 

The presentation will also connect with other sessions that have been focusing on northern food security like Niriqatiginnga, which have been taking place in Winnipeg since 2021. The Permafrost Pathways and Niriqatiginnga projects have been collaborating for three years in places ranging from the Qaumajuq to St. Boniface chocolate shops, in Winnipeg Manitoba. The Niriqatiginnga sessions will include presentations from the University of Alaska Fairbanks such as:

Economic consequences of food spoilage in Alaskan rural supply chains by authors: Michael Jones – University of Alaska Anchorage and Genevieve Bostwick – University of Alaska, Anchorage. Their session: 3.5.4 Niriqatiginnga: Fostering Food Security and Innovation for Northern Supply Chains will take place at the Scandic Bodø Hotel – Room: Ambassadør 1, 31/05/2024, 13:30 – 15:00.

As well, the Alaskan and Canadian session will learn from a detailed analysis of seasonally dynamic food price disparities across Alaska. We model these large disparities in absolute and relative terms between Anchorage and remote Alaskan communities, providing key insight for food security and broader geographic cost differential analysis. This disparity underscores the unique economic and logistical challenges faced by remote Alaskan areas.
