Strait Science – Bering Strait Weather 2020 Recap and 2021 Outlook

May 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm AKDT

The Strait Science Series lectures are presented by Northwest Campus and Alaska Sea Grant to promote understanding between citizens of the Bering Strait region and the researchers who frequent the Seward Peninsula.

Weatherwise, it was another eventful winter across western Alaska, from the late Bering Sea ice-up, to yet another stormy and snowy March. Rick will recap this winter and look at the most recent climate outlooks for summer on land and sea, focusing on the Bering Strait region. Hear how rural communities can collect winter snowpack data through volunteer “Snow Courses!”

Rick Thoman is the Alaska Climate Specialist for the UAF Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy.
