The community is invited to join Dr. Mel Strong for “Night with a Nerd” 6-8 p.m., June 13 at ProjectY cowork, 150 Central Park Square in downtown Los Alamos.
New Mexico’s “monsoon season” is responsible for about half of its annual precipitation. But why does New Mexico have a monsoon? Why does it start and end at particular times of the year? Why does it vary? How is it changing?
This talk will address these questions and more as the mechanisms behind the monsoon are explored. Mini lessons in meteorology will be distributed throughout the talk, and beautiful time-lapse photography of clouds is promised.
