NOAA Live! Alaska: Breaking Up is Hard to Do: River Ice Breakup in Alaska
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
April 20, 2021 - Breaking Up is Hard To Do: River Ice Breakup in Alaska
Tuesday, April 20, 2021 - 11:00 am Alaska time
Crane Johnson, NOAA's National Weather Service Alaska Pacific River Forecast Center
Each spring, rivers in Alaska go from ice covered to open water during a time of year we call 'Breakup'. It is a time to be prepared. Ice jams can form during breakup and cause flooding. Join us to look at river ice and how ice jams form, and learn how we monitor breakup around Alaska. We will also find out what to expect for breakup this Spring.

(The webinar will also be live streamed via Facebook Live on the NOAA Fisheries Alaska Facebook page - @NOAAFisheriesAK.)
NOAA Live! Alaska is a weekly series of interactive webinars, aimed at Alaska students in grades 2–8 (but of interest to all ages!). We will feature NOAA scientists, educators, and partners to explore NOAA’s work in Alaska. Learn about current research. Connect to what’s going on in your communities. Join us to ask questions to our presenters and learn more about weather, oceanography, marine life, fisheries and more in Alaska!
NOAA Live! Alaska is coordinated by NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center, NOAA's Alaska Regional Collaboration Network, and the National Weather Service. The series is modeled on the NOAA Live! webinars coordinated by Woods Hole Sea Grant and the NOAA Regional Collaboration Network. Contact Lisa.Hiruki-Raring@noaa.gov with any questions.
