Webinars

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.

Drought in a Rainforest...how can that be??

Rick Thoman and Aaron Jacobs, National Weather Service

This talk will go through the causes, specific impacts and how difficult it is to predict the onset and relief from drought conditions in an rainforest.

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.

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.
