Over the last decade, predicting the weather, climate and atmospheric composition has emerged as one of the most important areas of scientific endeavor. This emerging challenge was at the center of the World Weather Open Science Conference (Montreal, 2014). We will discuss some of the long term goals of this effort and provide examples of Earth-system modelling and prediction from urban scales to global scales.
The Natural Resources & Environmental Studies Institute (NRESi) at UNBC hosts a weekly lecture series at the Prince George campus. Anyone from the university or wider community with interest in the topic area is welcome to attend. Presentations are also made available to remote participants through Livestream and Blue Jeans. Go to http://www.unbc.ca/nres-institute/colloquium-webcasts to view the presentation remotely.
Past NRESi colloquium presentations and special lectures can be viewed on our video archive, available here.
