Abstract
This paper reports on a special health concern identified in Point Hope during the Climate Change Health Impacts Assessment performed in May 2009: the thawing of traditional food storage cellars due to warming soil temperature. This problem is reducing the quality and quantity of food available to the residents of Point Hope. Adaptive strategies are necessary to restore food security in Point Hope and in other Arctic communities that depend on traditional storage cellars.

Abstract
This paper reports on a special health concern identified during surveys performed in November of 2009 and January 2010: the thawing of traditional, underground food storage cellars. Thawing permafrost is reducing the quality and quantity of food resources for some families, and resulting in cellars that have the potential to collapse and cause injury. In this Bulletin, the problem is described and recommendations are presented for performing comprehensive assessments of traditional ice cellars in Barrow and other Arctic communities.
