The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a National Weather Service Alaska Climate Briefing webinar for November 2016 entitled, "Dynamical Downscaling for Alaska: What is it and How to Use it?" The webinar will be presented by Rick Thoman of the National Weather Service.
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 conclude with the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for the upcoming season.
Rick will also present a "Feature-of-the-Month" special addition in which he will highlight a topic relevant to the particular month. This will be a monthly series generally taking place the third Friday of each month.

Participation in person is also available at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Akasofu Building, Room 407.
