Thundersnow and Flash Floods: The Elevated Thunderstorm and Its Dangers

Event date(s): Saturday, September 9, 2017
Location: Monsanto Auditorium, Bond Life Sciences Center, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO 65211


Saturday, September 9

10:30-11:30am Saturday Morning Science: Thundersnow and Flash Floods: The Elevated Thunderstorm and Its Dangers

Speaker: Patrick Market, Professor of Atmospheric Science, University of Missouri, Atmospheric Science Program

Location: Monsanto Aud., LSC

Over the last 30 years, flooding has been the second leading cause of weather-related fatalities, with lightning coming in third. Many times, these phenomena occur on what may appear to be less threatening weather days. Our research group has produced a number of tools for improved weather forecasts on those days.

Saturday Morning Science is a series of one-hour long talks on various scientific topics. No science background is required, only enthusiasm for and an interest in science. The talks are free and open to the public. If you want to know a bit more about science or if you are simply curious, come join us on Saturday morning.
