The Meteorology Club at Cal U welcomes two speakers to campus in November.

Jason Levit will speak at 5 p.m. on Nov. 18. Dr. Jamie Mitchem will speak at 3 p.m. on Nov. 21. Both presentations will be in Eberly Hall, Room 110. 

Levit, who works at the Meteorological Development Lab in Silver Spring, Md., will discuss his work as lead developmental meteorologist for the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere

Mitchem’s presentation, “To Leave or Not to Leave: Communicating Meteorological Risks to the Public and Addressing Barriers to Safety Seeking Behavior,” will give aspiring forecasters more information about communicating weather hazards to the general public. 

A former member of the faculty in the Cal U Department of Earth Sciences, Mitchem teaches geography and geographic information systems at the University of North Georgia. 

Levit was awarded the Kenneth C. Spengler Award from the American Meteorological Society as a member of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration group that coordinates government academic and private sectors to address challenges of hazardous weather.

Mitchem’s and Levit’s presentations are free and open to the public. Directions and campus map
