  • October 26, 2017: [Evening Lecture] 2017 has been a year of extremes. We are just finishing up the hottest summer on record (or close to it for many locations) and whether or not you are ready to admit it, winter is coming. After our relentless 2016-17 winter with flooding, blizzards, historic snowpack, crazy winds, and some brutal commutes - people are understandably interested in what next winter will bring. Is it time to freakout yet? Join Chris Smallcomb, Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Reno, for a long in-depth look at potential impacts and predictability. A $5 suggested donation is collected at the entrance, no-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m. Registration link coming soon!
  • November 9, 2017: [Evening Lecture] Ice Shelf Collapse is catastrophic and powerful evidence of climate change. These ice shelves create epishelf lakes, a rare lake system when freshwater overlies seawater. Assistant Professor Alex Forrest will present on his team's usage of autonomous robotics to explore an epishelf lake in the remote Canadian Arctic and discuss how these "last of their kind" water bodies and ice shelves are rapidly melting. A $5 suggested donation is collected at the entrance, no-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m. Register here!
