  1. ACCAP Alaska Climate Webinar

    Presenter: Max Goldman, Audubon Alaska

    10:00 - 11:00 a.m. AKST

The Ecological Atlas of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas will present the natural history and ecological relationships in the Arctic marine environment. This comprehensive atlas is organized into six sections: Physical Setting, Biological Setting, Fishes, Birds, Mammals, and Human Uses. Audubon Alaska and their collaborators synthesized data from multiple studies, species, decades, and seas into more than 100 seamless maps. Through publication of the Ecological Atlas, Audubon aims to inform sustainable management of the Arctic's natural resources and inspire an appreciation for this spectacular place.

The Ecological Atlas is available at:

Complicated ideas and scientific data are often hard to understand for public or community partners. Reframing information to serve an audience is the first step in managing the message.

Dave Snider is the Alaska Weather TV Desk program leader for the National Weather Service Alaska Region at the Anchorage Weather Forecast Office. Dave has over 20 years of broadcast television and graphics experience in Alaska, Colorado, North Carolina, and Missouri. He has earned an Emmy and other awards for covering crippling Front Range blizzards, hurricanes, and tornado outbreaks up to the Joplin tornado in 2011. Now, Dave is using those experiences and tools to help Alaska's citizens and partners receive and understand the National Weather Service weather and preparedness message through social media and the Alaska Weather TV Show.

  1. November 2017 National Weather Service Alaska Climate Outlook Briefing
    Presenter: Rick Thoman, National Weather Service
    Friday, 17 November 2017
    12:00 - 1:00 p.m. AKST

The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. Rick Thoman (Climate Science and Services Manager, Environmental and Scientific Services Division, National Weather Service Alaska Region) will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review forecast tools and finish up with the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for the upcoming season.

Rick will also present a "Feature-of-the-Month" special addition in which each month he will highlight a topic relevant to the particular month.

The National Weather Service Alaska Climate Outlook Briefing will be a monthly series generally taking place the third Friday of each month.
