Welcome summer interns!

May 28, 2021

Welcome to our new undergraduate summer interns, Jennie Lee and Everest Litchford. Jennie is a Chemistry major at Virginia Tech, and Everest is an Atmospheric Sciences major at Cornell. Both Jennie and Everest will study the transition from shallow to deep convection, yet each taking a unique approach with different datasets. Everest will collect and analyze data from mini field campaigns that will be conducted here in and around Charlottesville throughout the months of June and July, and Jennie will use satellite observations to study the transition over tropical oceans. Check back at the end of summer for results from their projects!

Tropical Pacific Observing Network (TPON) Workshop 2021

May 24-26, 2021

This past week, Prof. Schiro, Piyush, and Sayali participated in the US CLIVAR TPON 2021 workshop. Check the workshop site for recordings of all plenary talks. See below for a copy of Prof. Schiro’s plenary talk on Tropical Pacific Atmospheric Observing Needs.

AMS 38th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology

May 10-14, 2021

What a great week! Prof. Schiro and Piyush participated in the 2021 AMS Tropical Meteorology conference this past week. All attended sessions exceeded expectations. Just as I thought I was too zoom-fatigued to participate in another virtual conference, AMS picked me right back up. Prof. Schiro co-chaired the Convection oral and poster sessions on Monday (thanks to all the presenters and attendees!) and contributed a talk to the Climate Variability and Change session on Thursday. Piyush gave a talk in one of the Convection sessions on Monday. Copies of presentations can be found below.

End of Semester

May 7, 2021

Thanks to all of my students for a great first semester of teaching. The virtual setting can’t be easy for anyone, yet my students showed tremendous patience, strength, and resiliency throughout the semester. Congratulations to all of the 2021 graduates!

New Course Fall 2021 – Climate Modeling and Analysis

May 2, 2021

Calling all those interested in climate! Want to learn about the tools we use to predict changes to the climate and various components of the Earth system? Join us in EVSC 4559/7559 Climate Modeling and Analysis during the fall semester. Prof. Kevin Grise and I will be working together to create a hands-on course where you’ll learn coding skills, data analysis techniques, and all about modeling the earth system, starting from scratch with basic radiative equilibrium calculations. More information can be found in our draft syllabus and in our tentative course schedule.
