AER scientist gives invited talk at the AGU Fall Meeting 2011

Nadya Vinogradova

I gave two talks at the 2011 AGU Fall Meeting-- one was invited and one contribution. Both talks were well received by "the world’s largest gathering of Earth and space scientists" of 21,000 attendees and were followed by interesting discussions.

I was also invited to serve as a judge in the Outstanding Student Paper Award, which brought up fond memories of my own wins a few years ago.

Snow Advance Index: A New Tool for Predicting Winter’s Severity

Judah Cohen, PhD

Snow Advance Index: A New Tool for Predicting Winter’s Severity

Researchers at AER have developed a new Snow Advance Index that could greatly improve the accuracy of winter seasonal forecasts. Based on research and testing, this index for the first time can accurately predict the severity of the upcoming winter. What makes this discovery so significant is that advances in seasonal forecasting have remained elusive, and for much of the United States seasonal forecasts are no more accurate today then they were decades ago.

The State of Solar Power Forecasting: Telvent DTN and AER webinar

Kyle Beatty

Utilities in North America will learn the current state of solar power forecasts, what innovations can be expected in the future, and how utilities are benefiting from these solutions to better meet the demands of the Smart Grid.

Kyle Beatty, AER VP Business Solutions, will discuss the state of solar power forecasting during Telvent’s Smart Grid Online Seminar Series, on Nov. 9, 2011.
