July 23: Ed Wiebe, “The Vancouver Island School-based Weather Station Network and Climate Change”
Join us at the Hornby Island Community School Library for this dynamic and fun presentation, suitable for all ages.
Admission by donation ($5 suggested). Presentation begins at 2:00 pm. (Enter through the Natural History Centre door).
Ed Wiebe is a Research Associate in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Victoria. He participates in research on climate, climate change, and computer modelling. Ed also manages the Vancouver Island School-Based Weather Station Network. The weather station network has provided around 150 weather stations for schools on Vancouver Island. Along with the weather stations web sites are available to view the data collected on the network in near real time. As part of this project Ed often speaks to children in Grades 4 and 5, and sometimes to adults as well, about weather, climate, and climate change.
This event is part of our Thursday Expert Speakers’ Series.
