NWA Annual Meeting 2015

NWA_logo_color

OU’s Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies will be well-represented when the National Weather Association’s Annual Meeting kicks off on Saturday, October 17, 2015 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. There are 26 CIMMS researchers who will present their work – some more than once! A total of 35 presentations on the meeting agenda are linked to us here at CIMMS. Another great display of all our hard work!
