The University of Alaska Fairbanks will host a presentation about the Austrian Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics’s emergency response activities and weather modeling at noon, Tuesday, Dec. 2, in the Elvey Building’s Globe Room.

Delia Arnold Arias, an academic consultant, will give examples of how the institute, known as ZAMG, would respond to airborne radioactive transmissions or volcanic ash using timely weather information and atmospheric dispersion calculations. In addition, she will discuss the backtracking response systems ZAMG provides as a regional specialized meteorological center.

The Elvey Building is at 903 Koyukuk Drive at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
