TV meteorologists from Chesapeake Bay water shed states spend a full day on Maryland’s Eastern Shore for in-depth briefing on climate science.

An historic B&B dating from 1710 along Maryland Eastern Shore’s Tred Avon River served as the setting for a Climate Central climate science workshop March 30 and 31 for TV meteorologists from states in the Chesapeake Bay water shed.

With funding from the Town Creek Foundation, the workshop at the Robert Morris Inn brought together 16 meteorologists and an eight-person faculty consisting of leading climatologists and veteran broadcast meteorologists.

It was a long and intense day, summarized, among other places, by Washington, D.C., WJLA-TV veteran meteorologist Bob Ryan, one of the faculty presenters, at the station’s blog.

Access to most of the official PowerPoint presentations used by faculty speakers is available by contacting The Yale Forum editor, who arranged and moderated the full-day workshop..

The Oxford, Md., workshop is one of a continuing series of full-day climate science “immersion” sessions designed specifically to help broadcast meteorologists better understand and address the increasing number of weather/climate questions many are getting involving both their on-air and off-air — public talks in their communities, station websites, and blogs — communications.

The next in the series of TV meteorologist climate science workshops is scheduled for June 15 and 16 at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
