National Weather Service and GIS: The Use of Spatial Data to Track, Forecast, and Monitor Weather-Related Events.
Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 2 – 3 pm, Mudd Hall (MHP) 203

Join Senior Service Hydrologist Jayme Laber from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s National Weather Service (NWS) to learn how the NWS Los Angeles/Oxnard Weather Forecast Office uses GIS and geospatial data to track, forecast, monitor, and issue warnings for weather related events. The recent extreme weather events in Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean underscore the importance of emergency preparedness, management, and response, particularly as extreme weather events are projected to increase in intensity and frequency. Mr. Laber will also discuss how the NWS utilizes geospatial technologies to provide real-time information before, during, and after extreme weather events.
