As is true of many of the tiny villages within the North Slope Borough, most of its residents now live in colorful cookie-cutter HUD houses and enjoy indoor plumbing, a diesel-fueled power plant to keep the lights and TVs on, a modern school, clinic, and fire trucks.
The folks of the village of Kaktovik, which sits on the coast just north of the refuge, bristle at this notion, because long before it was deemed "the last great wilderness" by conservationists in the 1950s, it was simply their backyard, where they fished, hunted, and camped.

 North Slope Sustainable Wood, LLC - About Us
North Slope Sustainable Wood started several years ago when outdoor and adventure writer Peter Stark hired Matt Arno, a professional restoration forester, to thin Larch and fir trees on overcrowded forest land he owns on the edge of Missoula, Montana.
After Matt’s crews thinned the stunted stands, leaving a beautiful forest of big healthy trees, Peter had the small-diameter Larch (or tamarack) logs sawn into flooring for a dance studio he was building with his wife, a modern dancer.
The completed work was more than a dance floor – it was a showcase of the possibilities of this small-diameter Larch – and it attracted the interest of architects, builders, forest ecologists, the media and many others.

PHMSA inspectors have been on site since the March spill to review pipeline operations, verify inspection data, meet with federal and state officials, and ensure completion of the corrective actions required by the agency’s orders, Barrett said.

Driven by the need to improve our understanding of the role that arctic hydrology plays in the regional and global climate, several related hydrologic studies were initiated on the North Slope of Alaska in 1992.
These studies included field research and modeling studies of the logistically accessible Kuparuk River basin and selected contributing watersheds, a north draining river system that empties into the Arctic Ocean.
The goals are to collect quality hydrologic data throughout the year, monitor and study as many hydrologic processes as possible, address issues of spatial variability, examine hydrologic responses at various scales, and utilize conventional as well as remote methods of data collection.
