Abstract. Using thresholds of physical climate variables developed from community observations, together with two large-scale datasets, we have produced local indices directly relevant to the impacts of a reduced sea ice cover on Alaska coastal communities. The indices include the number of false freeze-ups defined by transient exceedances of ice concentration prior to a corresponding exceedance that persists, false break-ups , timing of freeze-up and break-up, length of the open water duration,...

It is often remarked that Arctic coastal communities are on the frontlines of the impacts related to the rapidly diminishing ice pack. These impacts can have direct effects on communities, such as reduced access to subsistence hunting species, or increased wave height and coastal erosion. There are also indirect effects driven by external socioeconomic systems, such as increased maritime activity, which may provide local economic benefits while increasing potential for disruption to subsistence ...
