Alyeska Sagavanirktok River Project

Alyeska Pipeline Service Company Sagavanirktok, Dietrich and Tsina Rivers

Project Summary

As part of an effort to monitor weather and hydrological conditions on Sagavanirktok River, Alyeska and UAF installed one meteorological station in the upper watershed, at the head waters of Accomplishment Creek, and one water station on the Sagavanirktok River, upstream of the Ivishak confluence. At the meteorological station the following variables are measured: continuous winter snow depth, summer rainfall, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, and solar radiation. At the river gauge station water level, water temperature, air temperature, barometric pressure, rain fall, wind speed and wind direction, and relative humidity are recorded. Cameras were also installed at each station to observe weather conditions.
