Alaska Climate Downscaling Workshop

Project Overview

Dates: April 2011


Primary Scientists: 

One of the first endeavors of the Alaska CSC was to connect the climate science research community with stakeholders to advance regional climate understanding and research in Alaska. The result was a region-specific Climate Downscaling Workshop held on 28-29 April 2011 in Anchorage, Alaska. The workshop provided a forum for scientists and user groups to:

  1. Explore state-of-the-art techniques and methodologies for downscaling climate data;

  2. Understand current science capacities in Alaska and learn about new initiatives and future capacity in the state;

  3. Set an agenda to address Alaska’s science and management needs that provides capacity-building recommendations.

This workshop identified several important recommendations, including the need for better understanding of the science and application of downscaling and a need to develop downscaling best practices.
