DBAMS Book Club: The Thinking Person's Guide to Climate Change

Join us for the next event in our DBAMS Book Club series on Thursday, March 29.

We will discuss meteorologist and journalist Bob Henson's book, "The Thinking Person's Guide to Climate Change" (if you don't already have it, this book can be purchased from AMS here). 

Bob will provide an overview of updates he's currently working on for the book, and we'll find out how the landscape has evolved over the last four years, including:

Antarctica: Catching Snow in the World’s Southernmost Desert - An NCAR Explorer Series talk by RAL Scientist, Scott Landolt

Have you ever been curious what it is like to work in Antarctica where temperatures can drop below -50F and wind speeds can exceed hurricane force? Snow accumulation is the primary precipitation method that sustains the Antarctic ice sheets. Yet, snowfall remains one of the most difficult meteorological variables to accurately measure, especially in windy conditions. A new field program funded by the National Science Foundation is focused on testing recent advances in technology to determine if accurate snowfall measurements are now possible in the Antarctic environment.
