ACCAP and the Geographic Information Network of Alaska (GINA) have created this webinar series with the National Weather Service (NWS). Their goal is to bring cutting edge satellite based presentations to a broad statewide audience, while avoiding the costs of an in-person symposium. The partnership leverages ACCAP’s webinar infrastructure and list serve, and complements GINA’s and NWS’s deep pool of potential speakers and topics.
