Spatial Ecosystem Analysis Lab
The Spatial Ecosystem Analysis Lab (SEALAB) is a technical research and educational facility specializing in geospatial analysis, based at the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau, Alaska. SEALAB is the southeastern Alaska node of the Geographic Information Network of Alaska (GINA). The core themes of SEALAB are:
Providing capacity for ecosystem analysis and modeling in Southeast Alaska’s glacier-temperate rainforest-coastal complex; primarily in support of natural resource and agency applications
Advancing a “common geography”, e.g. a common source of regional geographic data and making the data accessible to the user community
Undergraduate workforce training and undergraduate research -- inspiring/supporting students to ask “place based” research questions and find answers that have direct relevance to their immediate surroundings
Current sources of support include the Geographic Information Network of Alaska, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Geological Survey, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, National Park Foundation, North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative, Alaska Climate Science Center, and the National Science Foundation (EPSCoR).
