NSSL scientists Jidong Gao, David Stensrud and the University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology professor Xuguang Wang have received a significant research grant from the National Science Foundation to develop new techniques that will help improve convective-scale (1km) weather prediction.
The Whittier Middle School Mathcounts team, coached by Katherine Brooks (assisted by Harold Brooks) won the state championship last weekend!
NSSL and CIMMS staff are preparing to receive honors and present recent research at the 2014 American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Ga., February 1-6.
NSSL’s Robert Davies-Jones received the 2010 NOAA Distinguished Career Award for scientific achievements in the application of observations and theory to the understanding of the dynamics of severe convective storms and tornado genesis mechanisms.
NSSL and NSSL/CIMMS scientists will be presenting their work at the 46th annual Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union next week in San Francisco, Calif. They will also be available in the NOAA booth to answer questions and display their research data.
NSSL’s Bob Rabin was a volunteer judge at the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) National Conference in Denver, Colo., earlier this month. Rabin judged both oral and poster presentations.
