The Interdisciplinary Research for Arctic Coastal Environments (InteRFACE) project focuses on how the coupled, multi-scale feedbacks among land processes (permafrost thaw, hydrology, and erosion), sea ice (morphology and coupling), ocean dynamics (stratification, waves, and tides), coastal change (erosion, deposition, and flooding), marine biogeochemistry and human systems (transportation, resource availability and extraction, and settlements) will control the trajectory and rate of change across the Arctic coastal interface. LANL work has been reviewed for unlimited release under LA-UR-22-22276 (Los Alamos Unlimited Release).
InteRFACE is a multi-institution project funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science Biological and Environmental Research (BER) Earth & Environmental Systems Sciences Division (EESSD) Earth & Environmental System Modeling (EESM) and Data Management (DM) Programs. All three of the EESM program areas support InteRFACE research: Regional and Global Model Analysis (RGMA), Earth System Model Development (ESMD), and MultiSector Dynamics (MSD).
Led out of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), InteRFACE is a collaborative project comprised of four National Laboratories, and the University of Alaska, Fairbanks (UAF). The national laboratories include LANL, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), and the Sandia National Laboratories (SNL).
