Organizer of Brainstorm: Dimensions of Human Interaction With Weather

El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (El Colef), a través de la Maestría en Administración Integral del Ambiente, en conjunto con la Universidad de California en San Diego, invitan a participar en el “Foro Interdisciplinario de Investigación Ambiental” a realizarse en el Instituto de Geofísica y Física Planetaria.

Humans have attempted to understand, predict, control, and manipulate weather since the dawn of civilization. At this interdisciplinary event, we will hear academics and city officials discuss efforts to forecast and control weather, as well as how weather impacts human mood and behavior, from the perspectives of hydrology, economics, political science, history, and city planning.
