Understanding the response of Alaska's ecosystems to a changing climate to support resource managers and sustainable communities

 

A new website, the Early Career Climate Forum, was recently launched to facilitate collaboration and networking among early career scientists, managers, and others working at the science-management interface on climate change issues. The Early Career Climate Forum grew out of a summer workshop, the Northwest Climate Science Bootcamp, sponsored by the Northwest Climate Science Center. The website provides a space for users to explore new ideas, share research and project findings, and improve climate change communication.
