What would any discussions of Tasmanian tempests be without an exploration of what makes our weather the way it is?
The Friends of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery cordially invite you to a talk entitled Key drivers of Tasmanian climate variability: a brief overview by a familiar face on the Tasmanian weather scene — Mike Pook.
Mike is an Honorary Fellow in CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere and an Associate of the University of Tasmania. Prior to his retirement, he was a Research Scientist at CSIRO, working in the Seasonal Prediction and Climate Variability Group. You probably know him best as ABC Tasmania’s TV weather presenter from 1985 to the end of 2002.
Mike will draw upon his skills as a scientist and as a science communicator to talk about the local and remote influences that contribute to the natural variability of Tasmania’s weather and climate.
So grab your brolly, hold onto your hat and venture out into the midwinter night to hear about our tempestuous weather from someone who has spent a lifetime studying it.
