We are hosting NWS’s storm spotter training!
The Metro SCAMS crew has made it to New Orleans and will be presenting their research tomorrow and on Thursday! Presentation topics include the development of new radar algorithms to now-cast snowfall, new algorithms to be implemented on ASOS systems to detect freezing drizzle, evaluating the accuracy of aircraft icing weather models, cloud top temperature and snow crystal correlations, and fire weather analysis!
When we get back to the semester in a little over a week, we will be heading in with a ton of momentum and plenty of events are on the way!
Alumni Night SUCCESS!
A big thank you to all the students and alumni that showed up to the Alumni Night this past Friday! It was fun seeing familiar faces and meeting some new ones that we could speak with about our experiences in the program and in the professional world. There has been interest expressed in doing this again in the spring so, if you missed it, you may get a second chance at checking it out!
Student Travel to New Orleans
For those students who are traveling with us down to New Orleans for the AMS conference, make sure that you have spoken with the student travel adviser and that you are working on your travel presentations that will be presented on November 13th!
ENSO Expert, Climatologist, and Oceanographer Speaker Kris Karnauskas
Right now we’re working to find a date that would work to get Kris to campus. Right now we’re looking at the week of the 16th-20th of November and will update with details when they become available.
We still have some SCAMS hoodies left from previous years that we are selling to make money for the club! They are $20 each and are very stylish!
Meeting Tuesday 9/29-
We will be holding a meeting next Tuesday September 29th at 5pm in SI 2005 to discuss upcoming events, the New Orleans trip, as well as progress made on club clothing and guest lecturers. Make sure that you’re there to stay informed!
As we approach fall and winter when the weather has more of an impact to the nation and, specifically, the Denver Metro Area, we would like to start doing forecast discussions both at the meetings and on page. The discussions at the meetings will obviously have a collaborative effort, but the discussions on this page (now under the “Forecast Discussion” tab will need some volunteers. Of course, if volunteers are slow to come, the officers will do the first few. If you would like to participate, let us know and then send us an email with your discussion and we will post it on here! We would really like a collaborative atmosphere with forecasts so, don’t hesitate to comment on others’ forecast!
