April 22, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Friday, repeating until April 29, 2022

Have you ever watched a meteorologist standing in front of a weather map and wondered what all those strange symbols and lines mean? UWM Meteorologist Bart Adrian will unfold the story of one of the oldest and most powerful tools of the modern weather forecaster.

Hear the tale of René Descartes, who slept late and discovered the key to naming locations on a map. Become acquainted with the incredible Bjerknes family and the Bergen School of Meteorology—groundbreaking pioneers in the art and science of weather analysis. And join in constructing your own weather map, enabling you to diagnose and understand the behavior of the wind!
