Connecting Weather Forecasts With Darwin's Theory of Evolution

May 25, 2017

For many of us, checking the weather is the first thing we do in the morning and the last thing at night. And just as certain as our daily habit of listening to or looking at forecasts is our skepticism of whether the weather man or woman will get it right.

On this edition of UWM Today, meet a UWM scientist who teaches how to forecast the weather. Paul Roebber is a distinguished professor of atmospheric sciences and a key member of the Mathematical Science department at UWM’s College of Letters and Science.

Paul has been making waves in the world of meteorology because of his work developing forecasts - relying in part on Darwin’s theory of evolution. It’s a fascinating story and Paul is here to explain it.
