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.
