Want to better understand the winter weather? Heard about the polar vortex but don’t quite get it? Join Cornell professor and climate expert Art DeGaetano for a live web event to learn how the winter climate has changed over the last century and develop an understanding of how recent trends toward warmer winter climate conditions can lead to stronger and more frequent cold snaps and heavier snowfalls. With a brief introduction of key features of modern climate models, this interactive talk will explore how the winter climate is expected to evolve over the next several decades.
What You'll Learn
- What that Polar Vortex everyone’s talking about is and how is it affected by climate change
- How cold snaps and snowstorms have changed since the late 1800s
- What climate models tell us about the polar vortex and winters of the future
