January 2007 - Two major projects

(1) Weather and Society – Integrated Studies ( WAS*IS) Developing a cadre of physical and social scientists dedicated to culture change to actively incorporate societal impacts into meteorology. The new “gang” of researchers and practitioners will move the social impact efforts from being an “add-on” to meteorological forecasts or research efforts to being an integral part of new project development for scientists and practitioners.

WAS*IS is going to change what *WAS* to what *IS* the future of integrated weather studies

Next workshop end of January near Melbourne Australia.

Be notified of the likely WAS*IS Summer 2007 workshop in Boulder ---

(2) The Warning Project – Increasing understanding of short-fuse weather warnings—a four year National Science Foundation project studying flash flood and tornado warning perceptions in Austin, TX and Denver, CO

A research collaboration with Dr. Charles Benight (UCCS psychology), Julie Demuth and Mary Hayden (NCAR), Sheldon Drobot (CU Boulder), Lindsey Barnes (U of South Carolina), and David Schultz (Finnish Meteorological Services)
