The Beauty of Clouds with Tom Alena

Saturday, October 24, 2020 (please note, this is a change to the original date of Oct. 17)

Clouds, what are they and what goes on inside of them to make rain and snow?  For most of humanity, no one really knew. In fact, as late as the 1800’s they were described as “entities” in literature.  This vague definition allowed for many myths to be created around them. No doubt that clouds had something to do with water, but the link between groundwater and rain wasn’t clear (no pun intended).

This program reveals the history of cloud observation, their use as weather forecasting tools, and the science of how they form precipitation.  We will go over cloud naming and the man behind the “cumulus” description.  Utilizing the latest satellite technology , we will look at how clouds play a vital role in climate change scenarios.  You’ll never look at a cloud the same way again. 3:00 p.m. on ZOOM.  Members: FREE, Non-members: $10.00.  Please pre-register www.whitememorialcc.org You will receive an email with the Zoom link to the program.
