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.

Evaluating Scenario Planning to Understand Climate Change

Dr. Nancy Fresco, Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning

Our world is changing, but it can be hard to predict the exact timing and extent of the impacts. One way to deal with the uncertainty associated with shifting climate and varied human responses is to explore a range of possible futures.

Fire and Climate Change in Alaska

Join us in this discussion of how climate change can be expected to impact the fire regime in Alaska, what information gaps still exist, and what implications this might have for communities in Alaska.

Historical Sea Ice Atlas For Alaska Waters

John Walsh, Chief Scientist, International Arctic Research Center (IARC), University of Alaska Fairbanks & Lena Krutikov, Climate Science Analyst, Scenarios Network for Alaska & Arctic Planning (SNAP)

This atlas is the first ever consolidated, digitized, historical record of sea ice concentrations in coastal and offshore waters of Alaska, spanning the time period from the 1850s through present.

Hydropower Planning in Alaska: Does Climate Change Matter?

Jessie Ellen Cherry, International Arctic Research Center & Institute of Northern Engineering, University of Alaska Fairbanks

In this presentation, a case study in Southeast Alaska is described, where most of Alaska’s hydropower facilities are concentrated. Challenges, as well as our interpretation of the historical record of climate variability, are discussed.
