NWC Open House and Reception

Tuesday, June 12, ~3:45–7:00pm

On Tuesday afternoon, you will have the unique opportunity to participate in a tour to University of Oklahoma’s (OU) Research Campus in Norman, OK, where we will offer an Open House and Reception at the National Weather Center (NWC). The National Weather Center (http://www.ou.edu/nwc) houses a unique confederation of University of Oklahoma, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and state organizations that work together in partnership to improve understanding of events occurring in Earth’s atmosphere over a wide range of time and space. Many of the NWC research units are actively engaged in Boundary-Layer and Turbulence Research using both advanced observation and modeling techniques. The Open House will serve as a venue for you to learn about the research ongoing in the NWC, touring the NWC building, and for networking with conference participants and NWC partners during a reception. Transportation with charter buses between the conference venue and the NWC will be provided and are covered by the fee for the tour. Food and drinks will be served at the reception and are also included in the fee. The tour will start at ~3:45pm in OKC and buses will leave at the NWC at 7pm to return to OKC. The ticket is $50.00 to attend. 

More information about the tour can be found at the NWC Tour Flyer.
