SNAP research faculty member Keith Cunningham was a keynote speaker at this year’s Research and Technology Development (RTD) conference held at the Missouri University of Science and Technology in September.
Like the foundation of a house, the construction of a climate model is the product of thousands of small choices. Whether it's placing the nails and leveling the blocks, or determining which module to include or how to treat a model discrepancy, every decision is essential when you are building a complex base that's sound enough to support something much bigger.
SNAP worked with the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands Landscape Conservation Cooperative (ABSI LCC) to better understand the risks presented by marine shipping traffic on the ecosystem services within the ABSI LCC area of interest.
SNAP's Community Charts tool includes the latest climate data and extends our existing database of approximately 4,000 Alaska and Canada communities to Canada’s Northwest Territories (NWT). Forty-seven NWT communities are now in the database. We thank the Government of the NWT for funding this work.
