IARC hosted their fourth Research Salon Series on February 2, 2017. These monthly research seminars highlight certain research related to Alaska and the Arctic. This seminar highlighted what University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists learned about Alaska in 2016 related to ocean, sea ice, land, and atmosphere. Among the four participants, AK CSC's Peter Bieniek presented his work with dynamical downscaling and how it is essential to better estimating Alaska's climate and weather over the next 100 years.

Climate-scale variability and change often has local effects not resolved in spatially coarse reanalysis and global climate model output. Downscaling bridges this gap by providing locally-relevant climate information for your backyard. One method of downscaling uses a regional dynamical model to produce the needed higher resolution grids and is the focus of this presentation. The webinar will discuss unique value-added products such as rain-on-snow and extreme events as well as data-quality and uncertainty issues.

For energy companies exploring the Alaskan Tundra, ice roads are often the only way to travel. But, building these roads is complex, often dangerous, and could have long term impacts on the environment. Under a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Energy, the NSDSS was developed by the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Texas A&M University, and Atkins Engineering to help the various stakeholders of the ice road planning process to collaboratively design ice roads.

In early 2011, the Alaska Climate Science Center (AK CSC) opened as the first of eight regional DOI/USGS Climate Science Centers. Like its partners throughout the CSC network, the AK CSC’s basic mission is to provide managers and decisions makers with tools and information that address the impacts of climate change on natural and cultural resources.
