Colorado State Climatologist Nolan Doesken will tell us about the relationship between precipitation, water supply, and our landscapes. He will give a climate update and outlook for the season. What’s up with this crazy weather? He will also give us the background on the Community Collaborative Rain and Hail Snow Network (CoCoRaHs), how the program got started and how being an amateur volunteer weather watcher can help your community. Noah Newman will then hold a training to get you started as a volunteer.
We will have official rain gauges for sale, $30 bring cash or check.
The Colorado Climate Center was established by the state in 1974, through the Colorado State University Agricultural Experiment Station, to provide information and expertise on Colorado’s complex climate. Through its threefold program of Climate Monitoring (data acquisition, analysis, and archiving), Climate Research and Climate Services, the Center is responding to many climate-related questions and problems affecting the state today. The Colorado Climate Center is located at Colorado State University within the Department of Atmospheric Science, in the College of Engineering.
Attending the lecture is free, but please RSVP to ensure that we have enough seats and enough materials.
