Climate change and impacts projections for Alaska: From rough generalizations to custom information
February 17 @ 10:00 am to 11:00 am AKST
Speaker: Jeremy Littell, Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center (CASC)
Climate futures – the projected changes in climate and their impacts – are key content for adaptation plans, vulnerability assessments, and other planning efforts that consider climate change and its impacts. Despite this need, climate projections consistent with best practices for climate information and tailored to areas of interest for those engaged in planning for climate change have been rare in Alaska. For example, summaries are available for a whole climate division, or a specific community, but what about a specific land management unit, or area of interest to a community? In this talk, Jeremy Littell will describe work the Alaska CASC has done to provide climate information that meets these needs and some encouraging developments that will allow us to better meet the information needs that are emerging from this work.
