The University Libraries is very pleased to announce its third lecture of the fall 2018 STEM Speaker Series presented by Dr. Edmund Chang from the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences.
Title: “Predicting Nor’easters: From Days Out To Decades”
Date/Time: Tuesday, November 20 from 2pm-3pm
Location: Special Collections Seminar Room, E2340, second floor of the Melville Library
Here on the U.S. East Coast, nor’easters cause frequent disruptions to the entire region. On top of potential losses in lives and properties, their havocs can cost billions of damages to the regional economy. Our ability to predict these storms have improved over the years, and this has provided emergency management more lead time to prepare for mitigation. In this talk, Dr. Chang will discuss the physical processes behind why these storms can be predicted more than a few days ahead of their occurrences, as well as explore how these storms and their impacts are projected to change under global climate change.
We welcome students, faculty, staff, and the general public to register here and join us for this special event.
