AK Wildfire & Climate Change webinar - June 8, 2021

An intensified pattern of wildfire is emerging in Alaska as rapidly increasing temperatures and longer growing seasons alter the state’s environment. Both tundra and boreal forest regions are seeing larger and more frequent fires. The impacts of these fires are felt across the state. Alaska Fire Science Consortium Communication Specialist Zav Grabinski will give a high-level overview of trends in Alaskan wildfire related to a changing climate.

Originally from Fairbanks Alaska, Zav received a master’s in natural resources from Humboldt State University. His background includes geospatial and visual modeling of fire interactions on landscapes, regional-scale data analysis of drought impacts on forests, and website development and design. As the science communication specialist for the AFSC, Zav is interested in conveying biophysical processes to diverse audiences using modern visualization techniques and digital-media formats.
