El Nino impact on weather explained

The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan invites community residents, faculty, staff and students to the latest lecture in the spring 2016 UW-Sheboygan Speakers' Series on Tuesday, March 1 at 7 p.m. In the Wombat Room (Room 2114) on the UW-S campus.

UW-Sheboygan Associate Lecturer of Geography Christopher Johnson will address the topic, “El Nino and Winter Weather in the U.S.”

Specifically, Johnson will discuss what El Nino really is compared to the common misconceptions provided in the media and the general public and offer predictions on what to expect as far as temperatures and snowfall during the rest of the El Nino winter.

“We are currently in the middle of a very strong El Nino, and I would like to explain the weird weather we’re experiencing across the country this winter,” said Johnson, who studied El Nino weather patterns as part of his master’s degree thesis.

Johnson holds a Bachelor’s in Geography from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and a Master’s in Geography from the University of New Mexico. He currently teaches at both UW-Sheboygan and UWWaukesha, as well as Carroll University in Waukesha.

Other upcoming Speakers’ Series lectures will focus on topics such as the truth about GMOs and artificial intelligence.

All presentations are discussed in an open forum format and are held in the Wombat Room (Room 2114) at 7 p.m. Admission is free to the community, faculty, staff and students.
