September 15, 2011
Steve Apfel, Nezette Rydell, Jennifer Stark, Paul Wolyn
Hosted by Nolan Doesken
Operational meteorology is alive and well along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. In this seminar, we will all have the opportunity to meet the MICs (Meteorologists in Charge) from each of the nearest National Weather Service Offices (Cheyenne, Boulder and Pueblo). They will share their perspectives on current NWS operations and will describe the greatest current weather forecasting challenges that they encounter. Challenges and opportunities facing the National Weather Service will be discussed. This seminar is also intended as a question and answer opportunity for students considering career choices in atmospheric science. Paul Wolyn (CSU ATS PhD 1992) will be available to meet with students interested in learning more about NWS and operational meteorology.
