ACCAPwebinarthumbnailThe latest findings on predicted vs. observed climate trends across the US were presented at a Webinar hosted by ACCAP and the National Climate Assessment Team–Alaska Chapter on March 6, 2013.  Presenters were Dr. John Walsh, a well-known weather and climate scientist from UAF, and Dr. Sarah Trainor, Director of ACCAP.   The Alaska Fire Science Consortium  recently posted a summary on the findings that are especially relevant to Alaska and to the fire management and science communities.  You can download a copy HERE.  Also, the Webinar was recorded and is still available for viewing at ACCAP’s website:  https://accap.uaf.edu/?q=webinar/national-climate-assessment-alaska-chapter
