Students in ATM 450 Synoptic Meteorology Present Posters
During the fall 2012 semester, undergraduate and graduate students in Darren Clabo's synoptic meteorology class studied the synoptic-scale processes responsible for the development of precipitation and severe weather phenomena. They analyzed surface synoptic weather, upper air, and vertical temperature-moisture soundings, and the structure of extratropical storms. They made use of software tools such as GEMPAK and NCL for analyzing observed data and model output.
