The Good Morning Truckee event on February 12, 2019, featured speakers who presented on topics about Climate Change Science and Air Traffic Control Technology.
Storm frequency or intensity? How much is caused by human-induced global warming? How do you mitigate the effects of climate change and adapt to a new baseline climate? Derek Larson has been a professor at Sierra College since 2000 – his newest course is called “Energy, Environment and Climate.” Derek covered climate change and clarify the science behind it. Derek studied climate, earth systems, and oceanography at Stanford University.
Second, Hardy Bullock, Director of Aviation & Community Services for the Truckee Tahoe Airport District, explains an advanced air traffic control system called ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast). The Truckee Tahoe Airport District is studying the possibility of implementing ADS-B technology. Hardy shared information about how this new technology can provide safety, reduction of community annoyance, enhanced situational awareness, and better operational data to make the airport ready to meet the transportation needs of the community.
