Webinar: Multi-Stakeholder Ice Road Planning under Climate Change

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 10:00 to 11:00

Webinar to discuss the impacts of climate change for those designing, building, & using ice roads in the Alaskan Tundra.

The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) — a part of NOAA’s Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments Program (RISA) — is presenting a webinar on Tuesday, January 14, from 10-11 a.m. AKST (2–3 p.m. EST) to discuss the impacts of climate change on ice roads.

Under a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, the North Slope Decision Support System was developed by the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Texas A&M University, and Atkins Engineering to help the various stakeholders of the ice road planning process collaboratively design ice roads. Incorporating optimal route finding methods and climate change-aware lake water quantity and quality modeling, the NSDSS provides critical information in support of the annual ice road planning process.

This webinar will be presented by Bill Schnabel of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Steve Bourne of Atkins Engineering.

Pre-registration for webinars is strongly encouraged. The audio portion of the call is through a toll-free phone line and the slide presentation is streamed via computer. To register, visit www.accap.uaf.edu.
