Upcoming September ACCAP webinars

Tina Buxbaum

ACCAP has two webinars scheduled in September.  Please see information and flyers below.  Hope everyone is having a great summer!



ACCAP Alaska Climate Webinar
Dynamical downscaling for Alaska: what is it and how to use it?
Rick Lader and Peter Bieniek (University of Alaska Fairbanks)

Tuesday, 20 September 2016 
10:00-11:00am AKDT

To register for the webinar, please fill out the form available at:

Climate-scale variability and change often has local effects not resolved in spatially coarse reanalysis and global climate model output. Downscaling bridges this gap by providing locally-relevant climate information for your backyard. One method of downscaling uses a regional dynamical model to produce the needed higher resolution grids and is the focus of this presentation. We will discuss unique value-added products such as rain-on-snow and extreme events as well as data-quality and uncertainty issues.

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

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

September  2016 National Weather Service Alaska Climate Forecast Briefing
Rick Thoman, Climate Science and Services Manager, National Weather Service
Friday, 23 September 2016 
12-1:00pm  AKDT

For more information, please go to: https://accap.uaf.edu/NWS_Briefings

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/september2016/event/event_info.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.
