Join this webinar on observational, experimental, and model frameworks for predicting the impact of extreme events on both natural and human systems. The webinar will be moderated by Vanessa Bailey, a laboratory fellow and Earth scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). Speakers include *Dr. F. Martin Ralph,* the director of the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) and a meteorologist focused on atmospheric rivers, understanding the origins of floods, and improving predictions for water management and flood control applications, and *Dr. Nick Ward*, the team leader of Environmental Biogeochemistry in the PNNL Coastal Sciences division.

SIO has made breakthrough advances in forecasting how atmospheric rivers and droughts impact west coast communities, and PNNL is leading novel research aimed at establishing a transferable understanding of how climate change and extreme events will alter the structure and function of diverse coastal ecosystems.
