Weather tracking scientist to speak on campus


Karen Kosiba, a meteorologist and project scientist from the Center for Severe Weather Research, will share her professional experiences with Central Michigan University students on Thursday, March 23.

The department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences is hosting Kosiba at 4 p.m. in Brooks Hall room 203. In her seminar, 'X marks the spot: Uncovering tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, and other cool weather with mobile radars,' Kosiba will discuss the characteristics of her research and field work in tracking extreme weather.

John Allen, a professor of Meteorology at CMU, said Kosiba is a valuable scientist to invite to campus as a speaker.

“Having a strong female research scientist come to CMU shows students that not everyone one who is involved in science is a man,” said John Allen, a professor of Meteorology.
