8th Annual Southeastern Coastal and Atmospheric Processes Symposium (SECAPS)

Source: (11 May 2011)
The 21st century has seen an explosion of new
weather technology. From advanced television
weather graphics to in-depth public hurricane
models, the general publicís access to weather
information is simply a click away.

However, does this overabundance of resources
benefit society? While weather technology has
become more savvy and more readily available,
its widespread availability could cause confusion
within the general public.

With many turning to social networking sites
such as Facebook and Twitter, meteorologists
are also using social media to their advantage.
The National Weather Service in Fort Worth, TX,
is one of many forecast offices that even has its
own Facebook page, providing up to the minute
forecasts, watches, and warnings.

The 2011 SeCAPS panel discussion will feature a
medley of talented meteorologists who will debate these topics.

Location:   Mobile, Alabama, USA
Dates:   February 25-26, 2011
Abstract/Proposal Submission Deadline:   February 2, 2011
