Prof. Clements discusses Carr fire on KQED Forum

CSU-MAPS at Rim Fire, Yosemite Aug. 2013

The faculty from the SJSU Meteorology and Climate Science Department continue to be the “go-to” media expert commentators on matters including local weather phenomena, climate, and fire weather, with multiple TV and radio appearances in the last week alone. The media come to our faculty often because of their keen insights developed through cutting edge research. For example,  Prof. Craig Clements, Director of the SJSU Fire Weather Research Lab has been using the California State University-Mobile Atmospheric Profiling System (CSU-MAPS), the most advanced mobile atmospheric boundary-layer profiling system in the US, to collect data on the Carr fire near Redding, California this week.

On Monday, Prof. Clements shared his expertise as a guest expert on the KQED Forum program with Michael Krasny. Listen to the show here. Clements work was also highlighted this week in Rolling Stone, KQED Science, Time, and the Mercury News, among many others.

Prof. Alison Bridger, Clements’ colleague in the department, was also recently interviewed about the fire tornado associated with the Carr fire on ABC 7 News. Watch her interview here.
