DCDC researchers will participate in the poster reception for the 6th Southwest Hydrometeorology Symposium being held September 27-28 at Arizona State University’s Memorial Union. The two day event includes interactive climate and weather forecasting sessions that will focus on impacts of forecasts and feedback on how NOAA products are used. Topics for discussion will include drought, water resources, NOAA’s climate services, and extreme weather events including, but not limited, to excessive heat, severe thunderstorms, flash flooding, dust storms, and hail. Providers and users of weather and climate information will be given a forum at this Symposium with the goal to 1) improve in product usefulness to the user communities and 2) discover/address information gaps which currently exist between providers and customers.
