Virtual Alaska Weather Symposium Webinar Series

We regularly organize these opportunities for dialogue and information exchange among stakeholders statewide. Presented on a wide variety of Alaska climate-related topics, webinars consist of 20–30 minutes of presentation followed by discussion and questions from participants.

Here's how to join a webinar

You will need either Adobe Flash or the Adobe Connect Add-in installed to view the online portion of the webinar

View and listen

  1. Register. Click the registration link in the above upcoming webinar box and complete the form
  2. Check your email. You will receive an email after registering that directs you to the webinar link. If you register 15 minutes or less before the webinar start time you will be taken directly into the webinar.
  3. Choose an audio option. Choose just one audio option to avoid extreme feedback issues:
    • DIAL-OUT (Audio option 1) if your computer has a slower (dial-up) Internet connection, no speakers and/or no microphone, OR if you want the webinar to call you so you can hear the meeting.
    • DIAL-IN (Audio option 2) if your phone service does not accept incoming calls. Use this option only if the other two options do not work.
    • USING MICROPHONE (Audio option 3) if your computer has a fast (DSL or LAN) Internet connection, speakers, and a microphone. 
    • For best audio quality and to limit feedback, please use headphones and a headset mic if possible. You can ask questions via chat with this option.
    • “Listen only” is for listening to the presentation only. Join this way if you don't plan to ask questions via voice at the end of the presentation. You need only speakers or headphones to listen.
