Rappelling down rock cliffs, rafting across glacial lakes, and traversing icy crevasses – it's all part of the job for glaciologists monitoring glacial outburst floods in Alaska.

Christian Kienholz is involved in the AK CASC Suicide Basin project and Rick Lader is developing finer resolution models to address Alaska's various climate regimes.

Gabriel Wolken has been awarded an international research fellowship in Switzerland to study and map Alaska’s snow avalanche hazards.

The AK CASC recently launched a five-year communication plan intended to guide AK CASC communication activities, identify target audiences, and keep track of progress throughout our current five-year hosting agreement.

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.

The FIRST Network is accepting applications for an upcoming workshop, Mentoring Our Own Native Scientists (MOONS) on Sept 19-21, 2018 in Lawrence, Kansas.

We have a new budget and a new name — we are now the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center.
