(AT) ONLINE – #TMNTuesday

September 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Hi Blackland Prairie Texas Master Naturalists!

On Tuesday, September 13th, join John Nielsen-Gammon, Texas State Climatologist and Director of the Southern Regional Climate Center, for a presentation on the climate factors that contributed to 2022 being yet another memorable summer in Texas. We’ll also look at where in Texas the conditions were particularly unusual and therefore likely to have an outsized impact on the natural environment.

NOTE:  This #TMN Tuesday talk will be earlier than usual at 10am-11am*

 

Program: #TMNTuesday – Summer 2022: What Happened and Why

Speaker:  John Nielsen-Gammon, Regents Professor of Atmospheric Sciences Texas A&M University; also serves as the Texas State Climatologist and Director of the Southern Regional Climate Center.

Description: By mid-September, summer will be over, or almost so. It’s time to take stock and figure out how the summer of 2022 stacks up against past summers. This talk will put the summer of 2022 within its historical climate context and explain the short-term, medium-term, and long-term factors that contributed to 2022 being yet another memorable summer in Texas. Also, since Texas Master Naturalist members are spread across the state with varying experiences, we’ll look at where in Texas the conditions were particularly unusual and therefore likely to have an outsized impact on the natural environment.

John Nielsen-Gammon has been on the faculty at Texas A&M University since 1991. He is currently a Regents Professor of Atmospheric Sciences and also serves as the Texas State Climatologist and Director of the Southern Regional Climate Center. He graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a Ph.D. in 1990. He does research on various types of extreme weather from droughts to floods, as well as air pollution and computer modeling. As Texas State Climatologist, he helps the State of Texas make the best possible use of weather and climate information, through applied research, outreach, and service on state-level committees. He is a fellow of the American Meteorological Society.
