    Diane Stanitski, PhD (NOAA) “Just as a doctor uses instruments to determine a person’s health, scientists take measurements of our planet to check its well-being.  We monitor long-term changes to see how they compare to the ‘norm’.  Join me to learn how we take the pulse of our planet, specifically that of the global ocean, and share that information to inform our next generation of citizens.  I’ll describe my experiences as a geography professor, NOAA Teacher at Sea, scientist deploying ocean instruments, and children’s science book author, with a focus on long-term observations of this amazing planet.”

    Stephanie Herring, PhD (NOAA) “Explaining Extremes in a Changing Climate.  After an extreme event occurs we often hear people asking, ‘Did climate change do that?’  Well, scientists have a way of answering that question.  This talk will explore how climate change is impacting extreme events around the world, and explain how scientists know when climate change may, or may not, have played a role in altering the risk of specific extreme events.”
