Graduate Students Attend ASP Summer Colloquium at NCAR
The School of Meteorology encourages students to pursue travel opportunities as part of their education. This summer, several of our graduate students traveled to the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, to participate in the Advanced Study Program (ASP) Colloquium.
After the application process, Manda Chasteen, Jon Labriola, Monte Flora, Amanda Burke, and Kenzie Krocak (pictured below) were accepted as part of the 25 students selected nationwide. According to their website, the Advanced Study Program hosts a summer colloquium designed for graduate students on subjects that represent new or rapidly developing areas of research for which good course material may not yet be available. The colloquium brings together lecturers and graduate students to NCAR and generally includes about 25 student participants and several lecturers from NCAR and the community at large. In 2019, the focus was on “Quantifying and communicating uncertainty in high-impact weather prediction”.
