Alaska’s vast geography features dramatic precipitation variation from the relatively dry arctic to the rainforests of southeast, but a changing climate is causing problems in some unexpected ways. Southeast communities are working to adapt to a problem they never imagined– drought. We’ll discuss community health, water conservation in a rainforest and the climate model forecasts for the future on the next Talk of Alaska.
