Class project information
You class project is to identify a past weather event that you have experienced and identify vulnerabilities based on your research. Pick a weather event that you can find information on when it occurred, what it affected, and who it affected. This document explains the project in some detail. We can discuss the project more during class. You are welcome to bring questions to class on Tuesday.
Your homework that is due on Thursday is to complete part 1 of the project.
Remember to set up your Twitter account and start tweeting about our class starting Tuesday. The requirements are to include @nmclimate in your post and the hashtag #LaSalleClima16. Use my twitter account to see examples of other people tweeting about the weather and the climate.
Here is a fun video that I took on my way to Bogota from the airplane at more than 36,000 feet.
