2021 Explorer Series events
Browse through our NCAR Explorer Series to get details on upcoming lectures and events, and watch videos of past events.
Learn how combining models, observations, and future emissions projections makes it possible to predict climate variations a decade in advance.
Did you know that how we manage our land also has dramatic impacts on our climate system? Learn more about how the Earth system is interconnected and how a changing climate can affect precipitation patterns which in turn can impact agriculture and society.
Did you know that satellite observations can be used for understanding the quality of the air that we breathe? Join this talk to learn about how scientists use observations from space to predict air quality, its connection to climate change, and how this research can inform health advisories and air management policies.
Our changing climate is evidenced by extreme weather events, such as deadly heatwaves and flooding rains, with further changes in extreme weather anticipated in the future. NCAR scientist Dr. James Done will discuss what we know about our changing extreme weather and how scientists study these changes.
Talk with NCAR scientist Dr. Michael Mills to learn about how scientists study volcanic eruptions and use global chemistry-climate computational models to better understand the effects that eruptions have on our atmosphere.
Earth’s warming climate has implications for increases in and severity of hurricanes, can modify the arctic and cloud coverage, and favors larger and more severe wildfires. Hear from a panel of scientists about tackling science, a changing climate, and motherhood.
Platicamos con el Dr. Carlos Marcelo García de la Universidad Nacional de Córdoba para conocer los aspectos hidrometeorológicos de la campaña de campo RELÁMPAGO, los estudios científicos que continúan realizándose en Argentina, y la ciencia ciudadana y esfuerzo comunitario denominado ProyectoMATTEO.
The Earth’s thermosphere and ionosphere are at the lower fringes of outer space, a transition zone from the Earth’s atmosphere to outer space. This is where changing space climate can impact satellite operation and space debris accumulation.
Did you know that how we manage our land also has dramatic impacts on our climate system? In this Explorer Series: Conversation, discover the connections between plants, the water cycle and our changing climate, and opportunities to get involved.
Find out what’s in the air we breathe, how far it travels, and what we know about the origin of Front Range pollution. You’ll also get a glimpse of the technology used by NCAR to study local air pollution.
Learn how 3D-Printed Automatic Weather Stations are ushering in a new era for continuous, advanced, automated weather observation.
