Fall Lecture Series: Exploring All Forms of Weather
Join David T. Chapman. In a province that is so vast and surrounded by the Great Lakes, it is no wonder we have some of the most interesting weather in the world. It offers such a variety all year round because of its terrain, temperature variations and location. Learn about Fallstreak Holes, Superior Mirages and discover how far south the Aurora Borealis can actually be seen. This presentation combines Ontario's weather uniqueness, power and beauty all wrapped into one.
David T. Chapman is self-taught in both storm chasing and the art of photography. He has been pursuing his career professionally since the age of eighteen. He learned at a very young age from his father to appreciate his environment in the surrounding countryside. He enjoys taking photographs and video of weather phenomena, especially lightning, as well as scenery and nature. David likes to seek out unusual examples of nature such as albino robins, ice crystal formations and frozen water droplets. He has found multi-petalled Ontario Trilliums, the highest of which had 33 petals and was found in Grey County, Ontario. David is also a professional speaker and enjoys entertaining and educating a good crowd. His main areas of expertise are Weather/Aurora Borealis, Local Interests and Scenery of Ontario, Birds and Wildlife. David's work has been featured on many networks including The Weather Network, Global, CTV, City TV, CBC Toronto and others. After over 15 years of studying all aspects of weather, David is now involved in researching past tornadic events across our province to fine tune his thunderstorm forecasting.
