In this presentation, the factors leading to this strong wind event will be explored in-depth. A climatology of the top 10 wind events to occur in Kodiak City will be presented & classified based on similar synoptic and mountain wave properties.

Alaska Hydrologic Conditions going into Spring 2018

Jessica Cherry, National Weather Service

This talk will provide a brief overview of current hydrologic conditions and notable events over the past winter and an outlook for breakup on the larger rivers this spring.

Arctic 2020: Building a Sustained Observing System

Jeremy Mathis - Director, NOAA Arctic Research Program (ARP)

With critical past, and potential future environmental changes affecting Alaska and the Arctic Region, the United States needs to rapidly expand long-term observing of the ice and marine environment across the Arctic.

Assessing the Vulnerability of Alaska Villages

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.
