VAWS: Future Projections of Precipitation for Alaska Infrastructure

September 15, 2021 @ 11:00 am to 12:00 pm AKDT

Speakers: Nancy Fresco, Scenarios Network for Alaska + Arctic Planning (SNAP) & Peter Bieniek, International Arctic Research Center (IARC) both at UAF

Climate change effects on extreme weather are invalidating old estimates of the likelihood of flood-inducing rain events. With funding and guidance from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, the Scenarios Network of Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP) at UAF’s International Arctic Research Center (IARC), with assistance from Neptune, inc. recently updated Alaska-wide precipitation data based on the latest climate change modeling efforts. Join this webinar to learn about the data downscaling and modeling techniques used to apply temporally fine-scale precipitation projections to an online statewide tool designed for and used by engineers.

This presentation will go more in depth regarding the downscaling and modeling work behind the tool. For a general tool overview before this webinar please watch the broad overview webinar HERE

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.
