Boundary Layer Seminar Series

OU BLISS sponsors seminars every other Friday from 2-3 pm in room 5600 of the National Weather Center. Members of BLISS, as well as outside guests, will speak on a variety of topics related to boundary layer research, including fieldwork, laboratory simulations, and more. All are welcome, and light snacks will be served. For a schedule of upcoming seminars, see the calendar.

Seminars will resume this fall at 3:00 PM on Fridays
