Session 6 Applications of Mountain Meteorology (e.g. air quality, fire dynamics, wind resource assessment, and winter sports forecasting)

Wednesday, 15 July 2020: 10:35 AM-12:00 PM
Virtual Meeting Room
Host: 19th Conference on Mountain Meteorology
Brian Brong, NOAA/NWSFO, NWS, Reno, NV; Thomas M. Gowan, NOAA/NWSFO, NWS, Reno, NV and Bianca Adler, Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Karlsruhe

During the scheduled session time, the link to the GoToWebinar for the live session will be available on this page. During the live session, each presenter will present a summary slide and field questions 5 minutes. Attendees encouraged to ask questions in the Q&A chat box associated with each abstract (click on the title to access) so that all attendees can see the question. You can also ask your question using the question feature in GoToWebinar but other attendees will not be able to see the question. To best prepare for the live session, please click on the abstract titles below to view prerecorded presentation videos and supplemental information as well ask questions/interact with presenters in the Q&A chat box.
