Sunday School: Rivers in the Sky, Rivers on the Ground: Atmospheric Rivers, Rain and Floods in the Willamette Valley

Join us this Sunday as we welcome Dr. Andrew Martin. He will teach us the importance of atmospheric rivers.

"Water moving across the earth in river channels is familiar to all of us, but it also moves in channels across the sky! These channels are called atmospheric rivers, and they are critically important ingredients to the climate, especially along America’s “Left Coast”. Explore what causes atmospheric rivers, how common they are, and why they are important to both water supply and flooding in the Willamette Valley."
