NSIDC scientist participates in climate webinar

On June 28 at 11:00 a.m. MDT, NSIDC researcher Walt Meier will participate in a webinar to discuss the highlights of the 2010 State of the Climate report, published by NOAA and the American Meteorological Society. The peer-reviewed report, with contributions from 368 scientists in 48 countries, updates many global climate indicators, and examines notable weather and climate events from 2010, which was one of the two warmest years on record and saw a number of weather and climate extremes driven in large part by El NiƱo-Southern Oscillation and other major climate patterns. Other presenters will include NOAA scientists Thomas R. Karl and Deke Arndt, as well as Peter Thorne from North Carolina State University.

Journalists may register for the webinar via the NOAA registration system.
