About This Event

2019 NNOCCI Webinar: Framing Extreme Weather Events 

(Hosted by the NNOCCI Science Partnership Committee) 

Extreme weather events often spark conversations about climate change.  Terms like Snowmageddon, Polar Vortex, Weather Bomb, Derecho, Firenado, Storm of the Century drive the public to ask, “What is going on with our weather”?

It’s important for us to use NNOCCI communication tools to ensure the conversations are scientifically accurate, well-framed and spark civic actions. Our Science Partnership Committee has assembled a great panel of speakers to help all of us stay at the top of our game for when the next event comes around the corner!

Join this topical webinar on February 19 at 11 a.m. Pacific/12:00 p.m. (noon) Mountain/1:00 p.m. Central/2:00 p.m. Eastern

Our Moderator is Science Partnership Committee member Sarah-Mae Nelson.  Sarah-Mae serves as Climate Stewards Academic Coordinator at the University of California (Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources).


Our Panelists are:

  • Dr. Tessa Hill is a Professor and Chancellor’s Fellow at University of California, Davis, in the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences. Her research interests include climate change, both past and present, and understanding the response of marine species to environmental perturbation. Dr. Hill will be addressing the topic of extreme temperatures.
  • Dr. Allison Wing is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida State University, and an Adjunct Associate Research Scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in New York. She is interested in atmospheric dynamics and climate, specifically tropical cyclones and tropical convections. Dr. Wing will talk about hurricanes.
  • Dr. Travis Longcore is an Assistant Professor of Architecture, Spatial Sciences, and Biological Sciences at the University of Southern California, where he holds a joint appointment in the USC School of Architecture and the USC Spatial Sciences Institute. He is interested in urban ecology and conservation, with emphasis on conservation planning, design, and management, edge effects of development, especially artificial night lighting, and monitoring and management of endangered species. Dr. Longcore will discuss wildfires.

Hello, this event is listed as starting at 4pm EST 2/19/19 at the top of the page, and 2pm EST in the description.
Can you please clarify what time it will begin? Thank you!

Hey Tiffany, it looks like the event has been updated to reflect the accurate 2pm EST start time. Thanks for the catch!

Leslie Adler-Ivanbrook

Hi, I'm looking forward to this webinar and hearing from the panel speakers. What is the expected duration of this event and is registration required?

Sarah-Mae Nelson, MS, CIG/CIT

Leslie, this webinar should last an hour. All you need is the Zoom link above to log on. If you have never used Zoom before, we suggest that you download the free program early and get it all set up on your computer before them time of the webinar. If you have any questions you would like to pose to the panelists, please let me (Sarah-Mae) know directly.

Sue Wu

Is the start time 5 pm EST (listed at the top now) or 2 pm EST (listed in the description.)
Thanks for setting this up. I'm looking forward to the webinar.

Simone Mortan

Hi Sue, I've been having the same problem. Lucky for me our web master is just upstairs and she confirmed that the 2:00 EST is the correct time. It's weird because my link opens with the 5:00 too and when Allison clicks on the same link from my email it comes up correctly as the 2:00 start time. We are not sure what is going on.

Sue Wu

Strange- I'm in the PST time zone in Oregon, so maybe that has something to do with it? Thanks for confirming the 2:00 pm EST starting time!

Sara Arnett

Did this meeting get recorded? If so I would be interested in watching!
