Episodes like this have sparked intense interest in flash drought and a clear conceptualization of what it is in both the research community and the end user/applications community
What does drought look like in Alaska? Limited climate data in the state cannot tell us when streams are so low fish cannot pass or when flowing water is insufficient to operate hydropower. These webinars seek to gather local knowledge and better understand the challenges of drought to food security, energy systems, and more.
The NOAA Climate and Global Change (C&GC) Postdoc Fellowship Program helps create and train the future leading researchers needed for climate studies, to serve the nation and support NOAA’s mission.
