“Modeling Our Planet's Climate: Spanning Time and Spatial Scales for Research and Applications” By Keith Dixon, Ph.D. Research Meteorologist, NOAA

Keith Dixon seeks to enhance the transfer and translation of high quality, scientifically credible information as it flows from the realm of large-scale climate research to that of regional and local-scale impacts and planning. Come see how scientists transition information from theory to practice and how we handle uncertainty.
