    Speaking:
    Crane Johnson, National Weather Service & Rick Thoman, ACCAP
    Each year the National Weather Service provides a breakup outlook for Alaska rivers. This winter stands out as unusual with both temperature and precipitation anomalies observed throughout the state. This year we are partnering with UAF to present a brief overview of current conditions and provide a climate outlook and the flooding potential for the 2019 spring break-up season.

    The 4th National Climate Assessment (NCA), released Nov 23rd, 2018, summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future. A team of more than 300 experts guided by a Federal Steering Committee (composed of representatives from each of USGCRP's 13 member agencies) produced the report, which was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including federal agencies and a panel of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The report is divided into regions and sectors. This presentation will explore the NCA process and key takeaway points with a focus on Alaska, including observed and projected climate changes on human heath and community wellbeing, as well as coastal and marine impacts.

    Rick Thoman, ACCAP
    2018 was another exceptional year climate-wise around Alaska. From unprecedented low sea ice to the autumn that just wouldn't end, from drought in the rainforest to wet in the West, this presentation will review these events and provide the context for another year for the record books.

    Using a facilitated online dialogue process, Resilience Dialogues enables communities to engage with scientists and resilience practitioners to identify challenges, locate relevant resources, and prioritize achievable action steps towards resilience. A public-private collaboration launched in 2016, the Resilience Dialogues is led by the American Society of Adaptation Professionals (ASAP), in close coordination with the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) and several other public and private entities. Nearing the end of its third year of implementation, the Resilience Dialogues has supported over 20 US communities on their journey to build community resilience to a changing climate.

    Speaking:
    Rick Thoman, ACCAP
    The winter of 2017-18 brought record late freeze-up and extremely low sea ice cover to the southern Chukchi and Bering Seas with dramatic impacts to the ecosystem this past summer. Naturally, inquiring minds want a heads-up on the upcoming season. This presentation will review the current and forecast state of the oceans and atmosphere and provide several scenarios for the winter and spring with an emphasis on sea ice.
