Decision makers around the world are increasingly looking for localized projections of climate change for their particular region. This webinar will include a discussion of a new set of downscaled snow projections available for the state of Alaska, as well as an explanation of how downscaled climate data are created, including strengths and weaknesses. Three major themes related to the Alaska downscaled snow projections will be covered: 1) How will the late-winter precipitation regime change in southwestern Alaska? 2) Will summer snow events still occur on the North Slope? and 3) How vulnerable is snow in southeastern Alaska?Alaska Public Media coverage: Researcher Looks At Climate Change Effects On Alaska’s Snow Regime
