About the Stony Brook Meteorology Club
The Stony Brook Meteorology Club provides an environment in which Atmospheric Science majors and other students interested in weather can come together as a community. We take trips to weather conferences, TV broadcast stations, and the National Weather Service, which offer our club members exceptional opportunities for education, networking, future research, and internships. At the conferences, club members present their own research to build upon existing knowledge in the meteorological community. We also bring our knowledge to the Stony Brook community by providing student-made forecasts and useful weather facts to the public on social media.
The club meets once a week during the school year. If you are interested in joining us at a meeting, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information is also available on the SBUWeather Facebook page.
Weather is constantly evolving and changing. We want to provide an easy way to convey threats, from inconvenient rain to severe snow events, quickly and efficiently.
Providing a short term forecast for the campus and local community is essential to our mission.
We want everyone to get involved in discussions on meteorology, climate, and anything else related to our fields. We also hope to provide explanations to our forecasts which will help those who are curious get an idea of the thought processes involved with forecasting.
