Southeast Alaska Drought

January 10 @ 11:00 am to 12:00 pm AKST

Speakers: Rick Thoman (ACCAP Climate Specialist) and Andrew Hoell (NOAA Physical Sciences Laboratory)

Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and policy and the International Arctic Research Center recently released a report reviewing the Southeast Alaska drought of 2016-2019. During this webinar, we will discuss the drought history, causes and ecosystem impacts in the region. Select community perspectives will be highlighted and the likelihood of future drought events will be reviewed. For Tribes, communities and decision makers in Southeast Alaska, this report will provide ready access to “what happened” and can inform planning, adaptation and mitigation activities in the future.
