Learn how local fire agencies use information gathered by the National Weather Service (NWS) during extreme fire weather conditions. NWS Oxnard Fire Weather Program Manager David Gomberg has seen this work in action at NWS Oxnard for the past two decades, informing agencies throughout the L.A. area and Central Coast. In this free online talk in the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History’s Science Pub series, Gomberg will provide an overview of the NWS Oxnard fire weather program and decision support services, including how NWS data help protect lives and property when extreme events strike Santa Barbara County.

Join the Museum’s fun and friendly conversation, and quench your thirst for knowledge about science and nature. Like the real-life venue Dargan’s, this Zoom webinar is free but has limited capacity.
