Briana Lynch (MS Seminar)- April 26

Abstract: Understanding flows within the urban canopy layer is crucial for determining the distribution of particulate matter in urban areas and implications for air quality and human health. While multiple studies have been conducted to understand plume characteristics in urban environments, plume behavior close to point sources (< 1 km) and the effects of buildings and foliage on plume characteristics are not well understood.

Daniel Tripp- April 24 – Weather and Climate

Free

Abstract: In the southern great plains, winter weather can have large impacts due to heavy icing and inadequate mitigation resources. The boundary between cold arctic air from the north and warm gulf moisture to the south is a consistent forecasting challenge for models even in the short-term.

Dr.Suzana Camargo- April 22nd

Free

The social and economic impacts of hurricanes in the U.S. in the last few years stressed the necessity to better understand the variability, predictability and risk of tropical cyclones. In this talk, I will discuss the current understanding of various aspects of tropical cyclones, from the ability of the current generation of models to make forecasts on sub-seasonal time-scales, to the estimates of hurricane risk in locations with very few occurrences in the historical record.
