Faculty note: Meinhardt articles on Alaskan village
Associate Prof. Daniel Meinhardt of Human Biology contributed two articles recently to the popular magazine Sustain Alaska. Meinhardt has previously traveled to, and written about, the island community of Shishmaref, a native village just off the Seward Peninsula in northern Alaska. Through words and photography, he has documented how climate and environmental issues are affecting the health and culture of the community and its residents. One of his current articles is about a pilot program to harness tidal energy and the other is about the use of shipping containers as building material.
