FORTCAST hosts ski patrol member, UNC professor at next virtual event
David Lerach, an associate professor of meteorology at the University of Northern Colorado and a member of the Diamond Peaks Ski Patrol, will discuss avalanche awareness and backcountry safety at FORTCAST’s next What’s Brewing in Weather and Science talk Tuesday, Oct. 20.
At UNC, Lerach uses the RAMS model to explore aerosol-cloud microphysical impacts on the evolution of deep convective systems. He also volunteers with the ski patrol to promote backcountry and avalanche safety.
The virtual talk will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a Q-and-A session. FORTCAST will send out the meeting link closer to the event.
