Exploring Monsoon Season and Current Weather Conditions with CLIMAS

How much do you know about the summer rains we get in the Southwest U.S.? If you have questions about how monsoons work, including how to make sense of the recent weather conditions and rain events we’ve received across the Sky Islands, you won’t want to miss this coffee break!

We are honored to be joined by Mike Crimmins and Ben McMahan, two researchers at the University of Arizona’s Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS) program, for this presentation. Mike and Ben spend the hour discussing the basics of monsoon science and the research projects they’ve been working on. You’ll also find out how you can easily contribute to ongoing climate research from the comforts of home!
