NMTC Science Cafe - Saharan Dust Storms
05/24/2017 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bel Air Public Library

DOWNLOAD FLYER – science-cafe-flyer-24may2017-final

TOPIC – How Saharan Dust Storms are Impacting You Everyday

PRESENTATION – The Saharan Dust AERosols and Ocean Science Expeditions (AEROSE) are thirteen years of field campaigns that explore African air mass outflows and their influences on climate, weather, and environmental health in the Americas. The atmospheric and oceanographic data and observations generated by AEROSE support satellite and sensor evaluation. AEROSE also helps improve the National Weather Service forecast system, and your daily weather reports.

PRESENTER – Dr. Ebony Roper is Professor of Chemistry at Cecil College. She holds a B.S. degree in Chemistry, and a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Howard University. She has contributing to the AEROSE project since 2009.

TOPIC
From ENIAC to Supercomputers

PRESENTATION
The Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC) was one of the earliest general purpose computers ever made and its development is considered the turning point for the computing and supercomputing age that has followed. Join us as we explore advances in computing and networking from the late 20th Century to today through the lens of computing milestones created right here in Harford County.

PRESENTER
Dr. Raju Namburu is Chief of the Computational Sciences Division, Computational & Informational Sciences Directorate, U.S. Army Research Lab, at Aberdeen Proving Ground
