This presentation will provide a brief introduction to the Alaskan Layered Pollution and Chemical Analysis (ALPACA) project, currently taking place in Fairbanks, Alaska. Speakers will introduce several major field sites and the project’s goals of improving understanding of how pollution behaves in cold and dark conditions and how the layered atmosphere affects pollution events.

The Virtual Alaska Weather Symposium (VAWS) is a collaboration between ACCAP, the Geographic Information Network of Alaska, and the NOAA National Weather Service. We present cutting-edge technologies in satellite remote sensing, forecasting, and modeling to a statewide audience through this webinar series.
