PGS Lecture Series 2022-09: Robert Badrina on climate-influenced land cover change

As the first law of geography states, everything is connected to everything else. For instance in weather forecasting, the mapping of various spatial and temporal dimensions and relationships is important to model the atmospheric processes. This is a crucial input in weather forecasting, climate modeling, and other forms of numerical weather prediction models. 

For the ninth iteration of the Philippine Geographical Society-Lecture Series (PGS-LS) for 2022, weather specialist Robert Badrina will present his research on the simulated impact of land cover change on Philippine Seasonal Climate and including his current involvement in operational weather forecasting at the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA). Entitled Beyond Boundaries: Challenges of Relationships among Various Meteorological Scales, the PGS-LS talk, which is the first for the academic year 2022-2023 happens on Wednesday, 21 September 2022 at 5:00PM.

Mr Badrina is an alumnus of the UP Department of Geography and he currently sits as weather specialist in the Marine Meteorology Services Section of PAGASA DOST Weather Division. He completed his geography and meteorology degrees at the University of the Philippines-Diliman.
