Dynamical downscaling for Alaska: what is it and how to use it?

Peter Bieniek & Rick Lader (University of Alaska Fairbanks)

Climate-scale variability and change often has local effects not resolved in spatially coarse reanalysis and global climate model output. Downscaling bridges this gap by providing locally-relevant climate information for your backyard.

El Niño and Alaska - Past, Present, and Future
