Carl Markon, US Geological Survey; and Sarah Trainor, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy
The National Climate Assessment (NCA) provides a current report of climate change impacts and vulnerability, evaluates the effectiveness of mitigation and adaptation activities, identifies knowledge gaps, and helps the federal government prioritize climate science investments. It provides the science that can be used by communities around our Nation to create a more sustainable and environmentally-sound plan for our future. Alaska will contribute one of eight Regional Assessment to be included in the 2013 NCA. The purpose of this webinar is to present a draft of the 2013 Alaska Technical Report and seek public feedback.
