Speaker: Kathleen Weathers
A world-renowned expert, Dr. Kathleen Weathers has been studying how fog interacts with air, land and water, and investigating its mysterious properties for over 25 years.

Recently, Weathers and colleagues have explored the biology of fog—the microorganisms traveling within these tiny droplets.
