"The 25-year Anniversary of the Perfect Storm"

Dr. Jason Cordeira, Assistant Professor of Meteorology, Department of Atmospheric Science and Chemistry, and Center for the Environment, Plymouth State University. The “Perfect Storm” of late October and early November 1991 over the northwest Atlantic Ocean was one of a trio of high-impact cyclones over the Northern Hemisphere that produced hurricane-force winds, 100-foot waves offshore, coastal flooding responsible for $200 million (1991 US dollars) in damage along the East Coast of the US, loss of life, and heavy (>50 cm) snow and ice over the Midwest U.S. The purpose of this talk is twofold: (1) present the key meteorological ingredients that led to these high-impact cyclones, including Arctic, mid-latitude, and tropical precursors that spanned the globe; and (2) overview the key impacts of the “Perfect Storm” to New England. Jason became interested in meteorology after Hurricane Bob and The Perfect Storm impacted southern New England during autumn 1991. He has a BS in Meteorology from Plymouth State University, a MS in Atmospheric Science from the University at Albany/SUNY, and a PhD in Atmospheric Science, University at Albany/SUNY. Jason completed a post-doc in 2012 at NOAA in Boulder, CO on topics in hydrometeorology. He has also worked as research meteorologist for a weather software company on topics in intraseasonal weather forecasting. In 2013, Jason became an assistant professor in the Department of Atmospheric Science and Chemistry at Plymouth State University where he is also an affiliate of the Center for the Environment.

Free for anyone who would like to attend.

There is no question about it: Cougars are not only being seen in eastern North America, some are attempting to recolonize their former habitats. Where once it was flatly dismissed as an impossibility in the so-called "developed" east, scientists have now documented cougar presence in a growing list of eastern states and provinces. Join us for a magnificently illustrated introduction to cougar biology and ecology in a broad diversity of habitats, from Alberta to the Arizona/Mexico border. We will also get the low-down regarding the latest confirmations of cougars in the east, including the recently documented suitability of a substantial amount of wild habitats from Manitoba to Louisiana and Maine to Georgia. It is only a matter of time!

Free for anyone who would like to attend.
