The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) is seeking an energetic graduate student enrolled at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The person will evaluate the Sea Ice for Walrus Outlook (SIWO) – a web-based resource designed to support (1) Alaska Native communities and other stakeholders interested in sea ice and walruses in northwest Alaska and (2) and National Weather Service (NWS) sea ice forecasts via feedback from community observers.

Crane Johnson with the NWS Alaska-Pacific River Forecast Center will review break-up basics and an overview of current conditions. ACCAP Alaska Climate Specialist Rick Thoman will provide the latest subseasonal outlooks that help inform the outlook.
