Weather and Climate Systems Seminar Series: Speaker

A Preliminary Climatology of U.S. Ice Storm Frequency and a Comparison Between Northeast U.S. Ice Storm Frequency and Teleconnections

Carly Kovacik
OU School of Meteorology

Carly was born and raised in northeast Ohio near Akron.
Carly first came to the University of Oklahoma during the summer of 2010 to participate in the Research Experience for Undergraduates Program. Here she worked closely with Mark Shafer and James Hocker of OSC to develop an ice storm climatology across the Southern Plains.
Carly is now a Master’s Candidate at the School of Meteorology here at OU. She is working with Dr. Kevin Kloesel and OSC on developing an ice storm climatology. She is also an intern at the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives in Oklahoma City and a volunteer at the National Weather Service WFO here in Norman.
Carly has been an avid distance runner since high school and will be running her first Boston Marathon in 2014.
After graduation, Carly plans to find a job in operational meteorology, hopefully as a forecaster at a WFO.
