Upcoming ACCAP Webinars: Oct 24 @10am ADT & October 27 @12pm ADT.

Tina Buxbaum
1. ACCAP Alaska Climate Webinar
 Assessment of the Application of Climate Information in Wildfire Management in Alaska: Experiences from the Alaska Fire Science Consortium
Melanie Colavito, University of Alaska Fairbanks
Tuesday, 24 October 2017 
10:00-11:00am AKDT

To register for the webinar, please follow the registration link available at:

The Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC) is a boundary organization that works across the science-management interface to enhance the role that scientific information plays in decision-making for fire management in Alaska. We conducted a case study of AFSC to examine how they facilitate the delivery, development, and application of climate and related information and to determine the outcomes of their work. Specifically, this talk will outline the evolution of AFSC to examine how the activities they use to deliver science and facilitate new research development, their engagement with climate science information, and the outcomes of their work change over time.

Available in-person in IARC/Akasofu 407 on the UAF Campus or online 

Registration and more information available at: https://accap.uaf.edu/Assessment_AFSC

Do you lie awake at nights wondering what the upcoming season will be like? Want to place bets with friends and family on next month's weather? If so, good news:

The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. Rick Thoman (Climate Science and Services Manager, Environmental and Scientific Services Division, National Weather Service Alaska Region) will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review forecast tools and finish up with the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for the upcoming season. 

Rick will also present a "Feature-of-the-Month" special addition in which each month he will highlight a topic relevant to the particular month.  

Available in-person in IARC/Akasofu 407 on the UAF Campus or online (http://accap.adobeconnect.com/october_2017/event/registration.html)

Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in-person or join online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.

This will be a monthly series generally taking place the third Friday of each month.
