This webinar will highlight many of the impacts from climate change on Alaska's weather. These impacts span the range of environmental impacts from Aviation to Volcanic Ash and everything in between. The presentation and discussion period will provide information and develop a shared understanding about links between climate change and weather and how these links drive the services, decision-support, research & development, and policy of NOAA. We will also discuss the future directions being planned for more focused, collaborative approaches to dealing with climate change adaptation in Alaska and the hurdles & pitfalls that potentially litter the way.
