Thursday Nights @ The Museum: NCAR Explorer Series - Atmospheric Rivers in a Changing Climate


View Map

A talk by National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) scientist Christine Shields.

A typical atmospheric river transports more than double the flow of the Amazon river, and when they make landfall, can produce heavy rain or snow. Figuring out how global warming will alter this important part of Earth’s water cycle is a key challenge for planning around our future water resources.

Free; reservations recommended.

Spend your Thursday evenings at the Museum this fall for adult Art & Sip classes, exhibits, and film, live music, and conversations in our intimate Stewart Auditorium. Whether you’re looking for a place to unwind after work with a beer or glass of wine, create art, explore our newest exhibit, see a movie, catch a great band, or hear extraordinary people talk about issues of importance to Boulder County and beyond, we hope to see you at the Museum on a Thursday night this fall. Many of the programs take inspiration from our current exhibition, “agriCULTURE: Art Inspired by the Land.” Galleries open late on Thursdays from 5 – 9 pm!
