Summary

Organizers announce a call for registration to an evening lecture entitled "Changing Arctic: How It's Affecting Our Weather." This lecture
will convene 6:00-8:00 p.m. EST.

Profound changes in the Arctic have coincided with more frequent extreme weather events across the mid-latitudes, such as Washington, D.C. These events include intense heat and rainfall, and severe winter cold spells and snow storms. Scientists are actively addressing if and how Arctic change is connected to these events, which affect economies, geopolitics, security, and society at large.

This lecture will feature experts discussing scientists' understanding of these events and the impact this has on society. An opening reception will provide networking opportunities before the lecture.

Featured Speakers:

  • Tony Busalacchi, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research
  • Heather A. Conley, Center for Strategic and International Studies
  • Jennifer Francis, Rutgers University
  • Chris Mooney, Washington Post (moderator)

This event is open to the public. Registration is required.
