The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy presents its monthly webinar series:

Title: “Updated Precipitation Frequency Atlas for Alaska”
Date: Tuesday, January 31, 2012; 10-11am Alaska Local Time
Presenters: Sanja Perica, NOAA, NWS, HSDC; Doug Kane and Sveta Stuefer, Water and Environmental Research Center, University of Alaska Fairbanks
NOAA’s National Weather Service Office of Hydrologic Development and University of Alaska Fairbanks, Water and Environmental Research Center are updating precipitation frequency estimates for the state of Alaska. Precipitation frequency estimates are used by hydrologists, engineers and others when designing infrastructure built to cope with runoff. The new estimates in an electronic format, which will replace estimates published in early 1960s, will be published in NOAA Atlas 14 Volume 7 and will be available through NOAA’s Precipitation Frequency Data Server (, starting in February 2012. In this webinar, the authors will present the steps taken in the data collection, analysis, QA/QC, discuss some of the problems and finally present results of the updated atlas.
