Future Earth: Weather, Oceans, Climate is the theme of the 51st Congress of the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS). Over 600 international and Canadian participants will gather in Toronto from June 4-8, 2017 to focus on topics in atmospheric, ocean and earth sciences in 40 scientific sessions.

Listen to some of CMOS' top scientists in the Future Earth podcast interviews by Dr. Sarah Knight:

Our Atmosphere - with Kimberly Strong, Physics Professor and Director of the School of the Environment, U of T

Changing Snow & Sea Ice Cover - with Paul Kushner, Physics Professor and graduate faculty member of the School of the Environment, U of T


Professor Strong is an experimental atmospheric physicist involved in measuring and monitoring  compounds in the atmosphere involved in the process of ozone depletion, climate change, and pollution. She answers questions about the rapid changes in the atmosphere in the Arctic.

Professor Kushner is principal investigator of the Canadian Sea Ice and Snow Evolution Network (CanSISE). He talks about how snow and sea ice cover are changing in the Canadian north, what the 1.5 degree Celsius climate target means and why the Arctic is warming faster than any other place on the planet.
