Oregon AMS PDO Meeting Next Week

September 3, 2012

We have a full slate of Oregon American Meteorological Society meetings planned this Fall.  The first is coming up next week:

HIGHLY ANTICIPATED OREGON AMS “PACIFIC DECADAL OSCILLATION (PDO)” MEETING WITH DR. NATE MANTUA IS JUST TWO WEEKS AWAY!

 Spread the word!

The 2012/2013 Oregon AMS season kicks off with a bang in just two weeks. 

On Wednesday, September 12th at 7pm Dr. Nate Mantua from the University of Washington will give attendees a great lecture on the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI). It is well documented that the long term PDO has reverted to its negative phase and will likely remain there for years to come. The PDO has a direct correlation to Pacific Northwest winter weather. Dr. Mantua will explore in detail what it all means for us this coming winter and beyond. This meeting is free, open to all ages of the general public, including media. Please join the Oregon AMS executive council by showing Dr. Mantua a warm welcome and attend this great meeting.

Feel free to post this notice on other social media forums / outlets.

By the way, the “cool phase” of the PDO is on the right, “warm phase” on the left on the image above.  It isn’t necessary to sit that way in the auditorium though.
