Permafrost Degradation and Monitoring in Alaska

Kenji Yoshikawa, University of Alaska

Join us to learn about mechanisms of permafrost thaw and how this school-based monitoring project is helping us understand permafrost degradation in Alaska.

Precipitation trends in Alaska: Data limitations and complex controls

Stephanie A McAfee, University of Nevada, Reno

Existing studies of precipitation trends in Alaska simply did not agree about the magnitude or even direction of trends. We revisited the question, analyzing homogeneity and trends in station data and three commonly used gridded precipitation data sets.

Regional Variations In Sea Level Change in Alaska

Jeff Freymueller, Geophysical Institute and Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Alaska Fairbanks

In this talk, Dr Freymueller will discuss regional variations in sea level change in Alaska.

Resilience Dialogues: Connecting communities with experts via online dialogues to lay the groundwork for long-term climate resilience

Sarah Zerbonne & Rachel Jacobson, Resilience Dialogues team; Catherine Kemp & Alexandra Long, Anchorage Mayor's Office

Using a facilitated online dialogue process, Resilience Dialogues enables communities to engage with scientists and resilience practitioners to identify challenges, locate relevant resources, and prioritize achievable action steps towards resilience.

River Ice Breakup: What Do We Know?

Steven F. Daly PE, PhD, D.WRE ERDC/CRREL USACE

The presentation will include discussions of ice cover formation and the typical resulting ice structure, wave-ice interaction, the physics of the cracking, and the current status of our understanding of breakup.

SEARCH for Arctic Answers

Brendan Kelly, Executive Director of SEARCH

Brendan Kelly, Executive Director of SEARCH, will discuss SEARCH and the Arctic Answers initiative.

Salmon Stream Temperatures: Past, Present and Future

Sue Mauger, Cook Inletkeeper

Seasonal Forecasting Using an Analog Technique

Brian Brettschneider, University of Alaska Fairbanks

Many places have a local saying that reads, “if you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes.” This idiom is not as applicable to Alaska, where strong seasonality is an ever present fact of life.

Snow Falling on Yellow-Cedars
