Future Projections of Precipitation for Alaska
April 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am to 11:00 am AKDT
Speaker: Nancy Fresco, Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP)
Alaska is expected to experience major changes in extreme weather during the twenty-first century, invalidating old estimates of the likelihood of flood-inducing rain events. Thus, the State Department of Transportation funded a project — carried out by the Scenarios Network of Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP) at UAF’s International Arctic Research Center (IARC), with assistance from Neptune, inc. — aimed at updating precipitation data based on the latest climate change projections. Join this webinar to learn about a new online statewide tool designed for engineers, but accessible and interesting to everyone.
