Observing weather from space

Naufal Razin, Research Scientist at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, CSU

Forecasters, analysts, and researchers heavily rely on satellite observations to understand the weather in places near and far, but how can they tell what the weather is like by simply looking at a satellite image? In this talk, I will present an overview of the different satellite products that help us better understand the weather- and how you can use them too!

Coral-lating corals to Colorado

Rich Karp, Graduate Student Researcher in Coral Reef Ecology, University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science

Coral reefs are valuable ecosystems which are considered the “Amazon of the ocean.” These wave-resistant habitat-creating structures can be seen from space and are incredibly vulnerable to warming oceans. I will discuss mechanisms to create resistant and resilient corals. We will also address how to scale restoration strategies and mitigate climate change impacts which will help these foundational species survive climate change.
