With hurricane season in full swing, Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History invites you to join us Thursday, October 7th at 6:00 pm for an evening discussion with Dr. Isaac Ginis, a Professor of Oceanography at The University of Rhode Island and an expert in hurricane modeling.
Dr. Ginis’ talk “Eye on the Storm: Predicting a Hurricane’s Path of Destruction,” will consider how scientists observe, model, and forecast hurricanes around the world.
“Eye on the Storm,” is the second installment of Changing Tides: A Series of Ocean Discussions, in which top marine scientists talk about current research and how it is helping to change the tide in ocean science and conservation. The series is presented in collaboration with the Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE) and made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
