Climate change and how it will impact Hawai‘i in the future

Dr. Steven Businger, Professor, Department of Meteorology, University of Hawai‘i Mānoa

For the past ten years, Dr. Businger has been active in researching the evolution and structure of destructive atmospheric storms, including: frontal cyclones, hurricanes, and severe thunderstorms. An initial focus of his work was on cold-air cyclogenesis and arctic hurricanes. More recently research has focused on the structure of the inflow layer of tropical hurricanes and the development of a hurricane balloon instrument platform. He has also been active in research on the use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) to monitor the atmosphere.

As always, these events begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday evening in the theatre at the Hanauma Bay Education Center.  Events are free and open to the public, with no charge for parking after 5:30 p.m.  We hope to see you on Thursday evening!  These programs are supported and funded by the City and County of Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation.
