Hot Topic: Flooding
Once a year we offer conversations with experts on topics that are prominent in the news. This series will look at these broader topics, with special attention to how we are witnessing them locally, and/or personally.
Mon, Nov 3, 10 – 11:30A
Steven Pahs, District Manager of Rice County Soil and Water Conservation District
Gary Wagenbach, Carleton Professor Emeritus of Biology.
The presentation will cover the recent flooding that has hit Northfield, and the changes we are seeing world-wide in storm intensity and frequency. What trends do the keepers of records and climatologists have for us? What can and is being done locally to adapt to a new normal?
