A Conference
Coastal Storms

November 12-13, 2008

The State University of New York announces a conference on coastal storms as its Conversation-in-the-Disciplines event at the Stony Brook University from November 12-13, 2008.  The objective of the conference is to present and discuss the most recent understandings of the physics, impact, prediction and future change of winter storms and hurricanes in the coastal regions.

Confirmed speakers include Drs. Louis Uccellini, Director of the National Center for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), Paul Kocin, Senior Meteorologist of NCEP, Kerry Emanuel, Professor of MIT, Richard Rotunno, Senior Scientist of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Chris Thorncroft, Professor of Albany University, and Burrell Montz, Professor of Binghamton University.

In addition to the invited talks, an important component of the conference is a series of poster presentations and discussions on the latest research on coastal storms and climate change impacts.  We invite abstracts on topics regarding the physical processes, forecasting, and climate change impacts related to cyclonic storms. We especially encourage poster contributions from students.

You are cordially invited to attend the conference and to submit a poster presentation.   Registration for the conference is due on October 30, 2008.  Registration for a poster presentation is due on October 15, 2008.  A block of rooms has been reserved at the Stony Brook Holiday Inn Express until October 15, 2008 (http://www.stonybrookny.hiexpress.com, code “CHG”).

This storm conference is part of an interdisciplinary conference on “Changing Climates, Changing Minds” from November 12th to 14th at the Stony Brook University.  The last day of the interdisciplinary conference will focus on public perception and trust on climate change.  You are welcome to attend all three days of the larger conference.
