The congress will bring together over 600 scientists and other professionals from across Canada and other countries, with a focus on topics in atmospheric, ocean and earth sciences. Interviews, by Dr. Sarah Knight of the Congress Communications Team, with some of CMOS' top scientists, will be conducted and included here in the run-up to the Congress in June. With over 40 scientific sessions covering a range of highly relevant topics - many of which are essential research areas for the health of the planet and its inhabitants - the CMOS Congress is a crucial gathering for some of Canada's top environmental scientists.

Ep2 - Dr. Francis Zwiers - Changing Weather Extremes

Updated 4 months ago.

Dr. Francis Zwiers, Director of the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium and IPCC coordinating lead author of the Fourth Assessment Report, discusses “changing weather extremes” – a topic that is also the title of a free public lecture that he will be giving at the upcoming CMOS congress, on June 6th. His very well-informed thoughts on how the climate is changing, what weather extremes we might expect in Canada as a result, some of what brought us to this point, and what the future looks to hold, are crucial messages that we all need to listen to, and take action on.
