Freshwater Colloquium: Using Ecosystem Dynamics to Make Weather Forecasts

February 27 @ 4:30 pm - 5:20 pm

Paul RoebberPaul Roebber will present “Using Ecosystem Dynamics to Make Weather Forecasts” as part of the School of Freshwater Sciences spring colloquium. 

This presentation is open to the public.

Attend in person at the Great Lakes Research Facility or virtually via Zoom at https://wisconsin-edu.zoom.us/j/96377668620?pwd=bTRsTGtpUDhLS290THBmQXM2dXpaQT09

Roebber is a Distinguished Professor of atmospheric sciences in the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences where he also oversees Innovative Weather. Roebber is an atmospheric scientist, a.k.a. physical scientist, who studies weather systems at sizes of a few meters to as large as continents. In recent years, he has studied and developed a range of machine learning techniques for improving weather forecasts at time scales of hours to weeks. The connection to biology arises through one such technique he has developed, evolutionary programming, which simulates predator-prey ecosystem dynamics in such a way as to make improved, adaptive weather forecasts.

The theme of this semester’s colloquium is Trends in Aquaculture: Meeting the Challenge of Feeding a Changing WorldFor the full colloquium schedule, visit https://uwm.edu/freshwater/spring-2023-freshwater-colloquium-events/
