Join us for our fall 2012 webinar series examining climate-related forecasts, cutting-edge research, and pressing resource management issues. The topic line-up for September and October includes tropical storm forecasts for the border region, energy and water management, and watershed management for providing ecosystem services. Each webinar includes two 20-minute talks and a 20-minute Q&A session. Space is limited.

Bradfield Lyon. His research activities are focused on observational and modeling diagnostic studies of climate variability ranging from seasonal to interannual variability to near term climate change. He is particularly interested in investigating causal mechanisms, regional manifestations, prediction, and impacts of drought.
Martín Ibarra Ochoa. He is in charge of the Seasonal Forecast Project at the Servicio Meteorologico Nacioanal. Martín focus on medium and long term forecast information and have provided useful information and forecast for the northern Mexico region during our webinar series.
Luis M. Farfán research focus on the weather phenomena impacting the peninsula of Baja California, Gulf of California and Pacific Ocean. He works on analysis of observations from Geostationary Satellite Server (GOES) and in the application of this information to operational numerical models (ECMWF and GFS) and research (MM5, HWRF). Phenomena of interest are convective systems that develops during the summer, including tropical cyclones and mesoscale systems in the Sierra Madre Occidental.
This webinar series features talks and dialogue on the latest climate research (including seasonal forecasts, climate, water and environmental impacts, climate change), and collaborative initiatives aimed at the exchange of knowledge between scientists, natural resource managers, water managers and other decision makers in the U.S.-Mexico border region. Each webinar features speakers from the U.S. and Mexico.
