Abstract
This paper reports on a special health concern identified in Point Hope, Alaska during a recent Climate and Health Assessment: disruption of drinking water treatment influenced by temperature driven increases in organic material in an Arctic tundra lake. Blooms of organic material have been observed in the past in the source water lake in Point Hope, but conditions have been extreme over the last two years. If warm temperatures continue, organic blooms will become a reoccurring problem for Point Hope and other communities that depend on tundra lakes for their water supply. Analysis of source water chemistry and biology is recommended, as is an analysis of possible adaptive operational procedures or design modifications that could improve water system efficiency.

Abstract
Terrestrial freshwater runoff strongly influences physical and biogeochemical processes at the fjord scale and can have global impacts when considered at the Greenland scale. We investigate the performance of the HIRHAM5 regional climate model over the catchments delivering freshwater to Tyrolerfjord and Young Sound by comparing to the unique Greenland Ecological Monitoring database of in situ observations from this region. Based on these findings, we estimate and discuss the fraction of runoff originating from glacierized and non-glacierized land delivered at the daily scale between 1996 and 2008. We find that glaciers contributed on average 50-80% of annual terrestrial runoff when considering different sections of Tyrolerfjord-Young Sound, but snowpack depletion on land and consequently runoff happens about one month earlier in the model than observed in the field. The temporal shift in the model is a likely explanation why summer surface salinity in the inner fjord did not correlate to modelled runoff.
