Green-up in Interior Alaska: When and Why it Matters

April 5, 2022 @ 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm AKDT

Speaker: Rick Thoman, ACCAP Alaska Climate Specialist

Green-up, that time when leaves burst forth from Alaska’s deciduous trees has important implications for the seasonal ecology, society and even meteorology in the state. The unique multi-decadal record of green-up dates in Fairbanks has been used to develop a technique for forecasting this and related events in the Interior and more broadly in the boreal forest regions in Alaska. This webinar will be the third annual review of the green-up forecasting tools and will provide a look-ahead for green-up for Spring 2022.
