Weather, Climate, and Virginia’s Hampton Roads Area to be the Focus of a Two-part Workshop Series, Jan. 27-28, 2015 and Feb. 24, 2015.

In January and February 2015, several federal, state, and private entitites are organizing a Weather and Climate Workshop Series at two locations in the Hampton Roads, Va., area.

Session 1, “Weather-Ready Hampton Roads,” will be January 27-28, at the Nauticus science and technology center in Norfolk (http://www.nauticus.org/).

Session 2, “Climate Change in Virginia, will be February 24 at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in Gloucester Point (http://www.vims.edu/).

The workshop series aims to bring together educators and scientists to explore the science that drives our understanding of weather and climate, talk about ways weather and climate affect the Hampton Roads region, and discuss ways to incorporate that science into education programming for students, teachers, and the general public.

The workshop series is organized by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Chesapeake Bay Office’s Environmental Science Training Center (http://chesapeakebay.noaa.gov/environmental-science-training-center), along with the National Weather Service, Nauticus, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, the Virginia Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR), and VIMS.
