The US Global Change Research Program National Climate Assessment (NCA), synthesizes the latest science on climate change and provides information for communities about the current and projected impacts. A draft of the 2013 NCA Report is available for expert review and public comment until April 12, 2013. This webinar will present draft findings and provide opportunity for discussion about the draft report and the longer-term on-going climate assessment process in Alaska. Discussion topics will include how perceived gaps in the report might be addressed through existing and new research projects, identifying new topics for consideration in future reports and initiatives, and planning for ways that scientists, decision makers, and members of local communities, including Alaska Natives, can play a more active role in the continuing assessment process. This webinar was presented by Dr. John Walsh, a well-known weather and climate scientist from UAF and Dr. Sarah Trainor, Director of ACCAP, and hosted by ACCAP and the National Climate Assessment Team-Alaska Chapter. It originally aired on March 6, 2013.
