Few people know more about the weather in Kansas than Mary Knapp. Knapp, the Kansas state climatologist and an information technologist in the Kansas State University Department of Climatology, will speak at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 24, in the Balkans Room of Pittsburg State University’s Overman Student Center in recognition of Campus Sustainability Day.
At PSU, Knapp will talk about climate change and the Kansas climate. Her presentation is free and open to the public.
As the state climatologist, Knapp is responsible for establishing and maintaining a statewide network of equipment for gathering of weather data, and answering questions on climate and weather matters. She also maintains the website that provides a constant update and complete archive of weather-related data for Kansas.
