Webinars

Climate Change and Tourism in Alaska

John Walsh, University of Alaska

Join us to learn about trends in the season length and frequency of weather conducive to sight seeing and how this can be applied in other tourist activities and locations in Alaska.

Climate Influence on Ice Breakup in Alaska

Larry Rundquist, NOAA National Weather Service

Join us to learn about trends in ice breakup conditions over the past decades, to hear expectations for breakup in 2009, and to discuss implications of variability in breakup conditions.

Connecting Alaska Landscapes Into the Future

Nancy Fresco, Scenarios Network for Alaska Planning, and Karen Murphy, US Fish and Wildlife Service

This project’s goal was to develop the ecosystem functions to ensure landscape-level connectivity within Alaska in the face of climate change.

Downscaled Snow Projections for Alaska

Stephanie McAfee, Alaska Climate Science Center

This webinar includes 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.

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

Rick Thoman, National Weather Service & Jon Gottschalck, NOAA Climate Prediction Center

We will review the current state of El Niño & expected development, examine how variations in the tropical Pacific can effect Alaska, finish with a look at how past El Niño falls & winters have turned out & review the forecast for this coming cold season.
