Ottawa Centre Visit us on Facebook
The Ottawa Centre is comprised of about 90 CMOS members. The Centre holds monthly meetings downtown from September through May. Our meetings are open to members and the public. Meetings start with lunch followed by a presentation by an invited speaker and discussion. Occasionally our meetings are joint with partner groups or societies. About every ten years, the Ottawa Centre hosts the annual CMOS Congress.
Outreach activities aimed at high school, university and post graduate students are a priority for the Ottawa Centre. We judge and provide prizes at regional science fairs in Ottawa and Gatineau.
ABSTRACT: While Arctic regions have been warming faster than anywhere else on Earth, the impacts of global warming have been most severe over the sub-tropics where about half the human race lives. Most disturbing of all is the desertification of the sub-tropics caused by the expansion of Earth's great deserts, leading to severe prolonged droughts and famines rivalling any in recorded history.
