3133 E. Newberry Blvd.
Bart Adrian, Senior Lecturer in Atmospheric Science & Mathematics at UWM, is the featured speaker. Three short narratives will be presented, each illustrating the impact of weather forecasts and forecasters on the course of human history. In particular, details will be brought to light surrounding: the 1941 German forecast for the Russian winter of 1941-42; the 1944 forecast for the Allied D-Day invasion of France; and the evolution of modern weather forecasting from the early 20th century to the dawn of the computer age. Each narrative will also demonstrate the inter-connectedness of the global community of meteorologists, with some interesting connections to Wisconsin. ** MASKS ARE REQUIRED
