Publications, Presentations and Posters


Fire and Ice researchers share their research in the forms of publications, presentations, and posters. Listed below are products from across the project, including a special section for our annual All-Hands Meetings.

Also, please note that publications written with EPSCoR support need to include an acknowledgment. For ACE publications visit individual research components in our archive.

Fire & Ice collaborated with the Alaska Fire Science Consortium to produce a wildfire safety brochure in February 2021. The document is based on interviews with wildfire agency staff and with residents of the area devastated by 2019's McKinley Fire. The 4-page brochure includes key tips in the areas of fire preparedness, evacuation and recovery.

In June 2020 Alaska NSF EPSCoR held its first-ever Game Jam, in which participants from across the world competed to design video games on a Fire & Ice theme. EPSCoR ultimately received 7 entries, of which 5 are currently playable or downloadable online. The first place winner was Extended Care Unit Room 19B, a text-based medical mystery by user "Ambrosio." Second was Climatic, a climate-based strategy game from "Blue Birdy. Third was a side-scrolling data-gathering adventure,  Alaska DataQuest, by "casperquincy," which also won the "Best Use of Theme" award.
