SNAP strives to make our work and related research accessible to a wide range of audiences. We work with our collaborators to develop the communication tools they need to share relevant climate research and planning processes with their audiences. Our science communication efforts are informed by research and developed by our skilled team of writers, designers, and multimedia communicators.


We strive to develop communication tools and engagement techniques that match the needs of unique audiences. Some of the audiences we have engaged with include:

  • The President of the United States
  • State and federal policy makers
  • Resource managers and other agency personnel
  • Private sector businesses
  • Communities
  • Alaska visitors
  • Post-secondary students
  • Academic researchers
  • Teachers and students

Communication tools

Based on careful audience consideration, key messages, and project budgets, we have the capacity to develop a wide range of communication tools, including:

  • Print publications (reports, fact sheets, booklets, etc.)
  • Scientific illustration
  • Web-based data visualization tools
  • Multimedia and video
  • Presentations about climate change in Alaska

Facilitation and training

We also have the expertise to provide mentorship or training in science communication techniques, including:

  • Science communication
  • Climate change communication
  • Design skills for scientists
