Thursday's Frontiers of Science Evening Lecture

This Thursday Evening's Frontiers of Science Lecture is one you don't want to miss.  Dr. Craig Clements, Professor and Director of the Fire Weather Research Laboratory at San José State University will be speaking on Advances in Observing the Wildfire Environment: Understanding the Role of Fire-Atmosphere Interactions
The talk is scheduled for 6 PM in 220 ASB (Aline W. Skaggs Biology Building).  Free parking is available in the Chemistry Lots.  Complete information is available at https://science.utah.edu/news/frontiers-of-science/.

Craig is a University of Utah alum and the "Indiana Jones" of wildfires.  You've probably heard of tornado storm chasing.  Well, Craig is an extreme wildfire chaser, using scanning Doppler lidars and other instruments to better understand how fire-atmosphere interactions yield extreme fire behavior. 

Craig is a great and engaging speaker.  This is definitely a lecture you don't want to miss.
