Shelter from the Storm
Part Two of a Three-Part Climate Talk Series

June 20, 2013
7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Harbor House Grille
Grand Marais, MN

Have you noticed the number of floods occurring in Minnesota recently? The flooding reflects an upward trend in heavy rain events. Climate change will likely accelerate this trend. In this talk, Minnesota Sea Grant specialists and a University of Minnesota researcher will discuss how Midwestern heavy rainfall events have changed and are expected to change. The presentation will also address uncertainty, risk, and what sort of rainfall you might expect to see on local, regional,and global scales.

Keith Harding is a doctoral candidate of Land and Atmospheric Science at the University of Minnesota. His research focuses on heavy rain events in the Great Plains and Upper Midwest and how these events relate to the planet's changing climate. A native of Minnesota and outdoor sports enthusiast, Harding has worked as a meteorologist and has degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Minnesota.

Join Minnesota Sea Grant and your neighbors for a casual, informative night discussing our changing climate. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase.
