The Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks uses climate data to create and share ideas of what a future Northern climate could look like. SNAP’s “downscaled” climate data and projections are especially useful to adaptation planning, because they provide a community- or region-specific level of detail that can’t be found in most large climate reports or forecasts. 

SNAP also produces climate data visualizations for Alaska communities. These include a climate primer, climate histories and projections, permafrost, precipitation, extreme weather, sea ice, wind, wildfire, and temperature.
