Researchers in the field in Alaska

Faculty members in the Graduate School of Geography disseminate their research findings in many ways, through articles in peer-reviewed journals, books, GIS software innovation, conference presentations and proceedings, and popular publications.

All recent faculty publications can be found in Clark’s Digital Commons. The Commons brings together articles that the School’s current faculty members have published and is an indication of the creativity, breadth of interest, and productivity of our faculty.
