Description
Event takes place in Charleston, SC. "High-Impact Weather Communications: Finding Calm in the Eye of the Storm". Hurricanes Sandy and Isaac in 2012 put further emphasis on a critical question facing the weather enterprise: How do we encourage people to take appropriate action when high-impact weather is threatening them and their property? This issue is certainly not new, but the proliferation of avenues which citizens receive such information (which can be conflicting at times) has brought this topic to an even higher level of importance. The main goal of the conference is the sharing of physical and social science in order to determine how the weather enterprise can encourage people to take appropriate action during high-impact weather events, while realizing there are still limitations of each discipline. http://www.nwas.org/meetings/nwa2013/
