Monday, Sept. 19, 6:00 pm- Dr. David Gapp- Central NY State and "The Year Without a Summer" – a bicentennial view. Join the OCHS as we travel back in time to 1816, "The Year without a Summer." Dr. Gapp's multi-media presentation explores a summer of cold, drought, frost, and even snow caused by the 1815 eruption of Mt. Tambora. This volcanic eruption on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa created a volcanic winter that settled over much of the northern hemisphere. Dr. Gapp will describe its world-wide effects with a focus on North America and on New York State. Come learn how central NY survived these severe conditions and commemorate the 200th anniversary of the "Year without a Summer."
