Sky Island Coffee Break: Exploring Monsoon Season and Current Weather Conditions with CLIMAS
July 29, 2021, 9:30 am - 10:30 am
How much do you know about our monsoon season? If you have questions about how it all works, including how to make sense of recent weather conditions and rain events, you won’t want to miss our next Sky Island Coffee Break!
Join us on Thursday, July 29 at 9:30 a.m. Arizona Time/PDT to learn from Mike Crimmins and Ben McMahan, two researchers at the University of Arizona’s Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS) program, about the basics of monsoon science and the research projects they’ve been working on.
Throughout the course of an hour, you’ll also find out how you can easily contribute to ongoing climate research from the comforts of home — and we’ll leave plenty of time for questions, giving you the chance to ask Mike and Ben anything you’ve ever wanted to know about the monsoon seasons of the Southwest.
Need time to formulate your questions? Start by visiting the CLIMAS website (climas.arizona.edu) and the Climate Science Applications Program (cals.arizona.edu/climate) before our coffee break to learn more about their work.
