“Spline Plots for Time Series Visualization of Annual Heating and Cooling Degree-Day Totals in the Climate Divisions of North Carolina.” AGC 2018

This is a poster I presented at the Applied Geography Conference held October 30-November 2, 2018, at my old alma materKent State University.

This was a wonderful trip! I had not been in Kent for almost 20 years. So much has changed … What ever happened to JB’s Down?

The Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center is a wonderful place. The whole downtown Kent area has been transformed in the past few years. Also, I could believe all the new buildings that have been erected on campus.

It was another successful Applied Geography Conference. Much thanks to Dr. Jay Lee, the AGC Director for many years.

This is a group photo of current Kent State University Climatology faculty and graduate students.  Oddly absent in the above photo however … is my dissertation adviser Dr. Thomas Schmidlin. Fortunately, I was able to catch up with him at lunch the next day and at the conference keynote address.

Also notable: While I was in Kent I visited Ray’s Place. My friend Bob  (also an old KSU room mate), was kind enough to buy me a late lunch.  I had the “Mofo Burger“.

Look for me at the next Applied Geography Conference to be held in Charlotte, NC October 2019.

Update: The YouTube video blogger Joe from “Our Earth” provided this introduction to the conference.

Oh man, it rained every day of the conference. I was hoping to get a better look at all the new features of KSU. I still had a great time, but there was never a good day for walking around.

The Sun came out the morning after the conference was over and I was checking out.
