A Coffee Talk Hour will be given by Kathy Klink

"Patterns of change (or lack thereof) in strong winds along U.S. oceanic coasts" will be given by Professor Kathy Klink.This talk will be held in Blegen Hall 445 and will begin at 3:30 on Friday, March 1st, 2013.

Abstract: Over the past several decades, oceanographers have observed an increase in high waves along U.S. oceanic coastlines. This increase in wave height may be caused (at least in part) by increases in strong winds. Land-based coastal wind records provide some evidence for an increase in the strongest wind speeds, with some curious and intriguing spatial and temporal patterns emerging from the analysis.
The talk will be held in Blegen Hall 445 beginning at 3:30. Complimentary refreshments and coffee will be served at 3:15.
Please see attached flyer.
The Department of Geography, Environment, and Society hopes to see you there!
