The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a
webinar titled "Precipitation Trends in Alaska: Data Limitations and
Complex Controls" on Tuesday, 17 June 2014 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.
AKDT. It will be presented by Stephanie McAfee of the University of
Nevada, Reno.

Changes in precipitation are important drivers of many observed
hydrological and ecological processes, and precipitation is a key
component of many studies. However, existing studies of precipitation
trends in Alaska simply did not agree about the magnitude or even
direction of trends. Researchers revisited the question, analyzing
homogeneity and trends in station data and three commonly used gridded
precipitation data sets. They identified numerous inhomogeneities in
both the station data and the gridded products and discovered that the
three gridded products displayed very dissimilar patterns of trend. The
webinar will also present some suggestions for moving forward despite
the imperfect data.
