News from AK CASC
A new web-based tool will allow communities in Alaska and western Canada to see how global climate change could affect their regions.
A team in the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks created the tool, which transforms predictions from global climate models into more detailed information about local conditions.
David McGuire, the Principal Investigator of the Integrated Ecosystem Model (IEM) project and Amy Breen, a project manager and research professor affiliated with the IEM project, discuss the IEM project, its goals, and significance for studying and managing climate change in Alaska and Northwest Canada.
The Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center met with Joanna Young, co-director and co-instructor for the Girls on Ice Alaska (GOI Alaska) program. Since GOI Alaska began in 2012, the AK CASC has been the primary supporter of this innovative science outreach program.
