TACNY Junior Cafe Scientifique: “The Big Lake Effect Storms: How The Great Lakes Feed Back Into Themselves To Keep The Heavy Snow Going”

Saturday – February 20, 9:30-11:00am

Milton J Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology – Syracuse, NY


View Larger Map

Talk Overview

The Great Lakes strongly influence the atmosphere in ways which might surprise you, especially in the winter when they are producing really heavy snow. We’ll look at some of the heavier Lake Effect storms and see how the Great Lakes actually modify the atmosphere to allow them to be more efficient snow making “machines.”

Presenter

David Eichorn, Meteorologist, MS environmental Science and PhD student at ESF; Member, American Meteorological Society; AMS Seal of Approval for Radio and Television.

2016feb8_13960483_mmmainDave is a meteorologist with over 30 years experience, currently with WSYR TV Syracuse specializing in lake effect snowstorms and atmospheric patterns which produce them. Dave earned his BS in Environmental Science from Empire State College, his MS in Environmental Science from SUNY ESF, and is presently PhD student at SUNY ESF. His PhD research is in modeling severe lake effect snow storms and their atmospheric signatures during their peak intensity. Dave has held adjunct teaching positions at SUNY Oswego and Onondaga Community College teaching Introductory Meteorology, Forecasting and Broadcast Meteorology. He presently teaches meteorology at SUNY College Of Environmental Science and Forestry. The courses he teaches at SUNY ESF are focused on climate change, global weather patterns and potential regional impacts as a result of climate change – science with a meteorological perspective. As a TV Meteorologist, Dave received awards for severe weather coverage of the superstorm of March 1993, Hurricane Gloria, and for educating the public in the science of Meteorology. Since January 2006, Dave has given scores of talks and presentations on climate change science to thousands of Central New Yorkers. He also worked with SUNY-ESF speaking with Syracuse City School District students at the “SUNY-ESF/SCSD Environmental Challenge” science fair and in 2008, moderated SUNY-ESF’s seminar series “CNY’s Response to Global Energy and Climate Change Challenges” working with community leaders across all of Central New York on local efforts toward the mitigation of our carbon footprint.
