NOAA Live! Alaska: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow... But How Much?
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
February 16, 2021 - Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow...But How Much?
Dr. Jessica Cherry, NOAA's National Weather Service River Forecast Office
Snow is a critical part of the annual water cycle throughout Alaska and provides important ecosystem services to plants and animals (including humans). Join us to look at how snow interacts with the environment in different parts of our state and how we forecast and measure it. We'll also talk about what parts of the hydrologic (water) and ecological system are impacted with changes in the amount and timing of snow.

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.
