Next FORTCAST talk appeals to Fort Collins sensibilities

The next installment of FORTCAST’s What’s Brewing in Weather and Climate series was crafted to fit the Fort Collins prerogative. Karen Kosiba, an atmospheric scientist at the Center for Severe Weather Research in Boulder, will present “A CRAFT IPA: A Career with Radars And Field Time Incorporating Proposals and Analyses.”

How is a career in atmospheric science related to craft beer? For one, there are plenty of acronyms in both.

A strong believer in experiencing weather from the inside of a Doppler on Wheels (DOW) radar truck, Kosiba has participated in a multitude of field projects, including: Radar Observations of Tornadoes and Thunderstorms Experiment (ROTATE), Hurricanes and Landfall (HAL), Convectively and Orographically-induced Precipitation Study (COPS), the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Thunderstorms Experiment (VORTEX2), Long Lake-Axis-Parallel Lake-Effect Storms Project (LLAP), and AgI Seeding Cloud Impact Investigation (ASCII).

Discussion will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, upstairs at Tap & Handle. Please RSVP here. CSU students, bring your ID for $2 off drafts.

Contact with any questions.
