Think & Drink – Windy City Weather: A Look at Argonne National Laboratory’s Research into Urban Climate Change

April 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join atmospheric scientists Matt Tuftedal and Paytsar Muradyan as they share insights into changing weather, climate studies, and their work with Argonne’s Community Research on Climate and Urban Science (CROCUS) project.

CROCUS deploys cutting-edge scientific instruments across the region to measure temperature, wind speed, air quality, soil moisture, precipitation, and more. By analyzing this data, researchers gain a deeper understanding of how climate change is already impacting Chicagoland neighborhoods, and why different neighborhoods experience climate change differently.

You’ll discover how this research empowers communities to effectively prepare for climate impacts. Plus, get a sneak peek at affordable tools you can use to set up your own weather station!

Beverages will be available for purchase from the Public Landing Restaurant, conveniently located within the Gaylord Building. These talks are geared toward adults, but thinkers of all ages are welcome lot attend based on their interests and attention levels.

Registration is recommended for this free event so we don’t overfill the room.
