Dr. Claire Pettersen and Dr. Aronne Merrelli were selected as part of the new NASA Earth Venture Instrument satellite mission, PolSIR. The goal of PolSIR is to observe ice clouds in the tropics and determine how and why they change throughout the day:
Group member John Delpizzo received a Master of Engineering Degree in Applied Climate in May 2023. Congrats John!
Researcher Marian Mateling has a new publication out in JGR: Atmospheres. This research used CloudSat observations to evaluate cloud and snowfall characteristics during Marine Cold-Air Outbreak conditions:
Undergraduate student Jack Richter is joining the research group for Summer 2021 (and hopefully beyond). Jack will be exploring the differences in snow microphysical properties during atmospheric river events.
Graduate student Julia Shates was awarded a 2021 NASA FINESST! Congratulations to Julia!
Dr. Claire Pettersen was awarded a NASA New (Early Career) Award:
Recent work outlining the capabilities of the Precipitation Imaging Package (PIP) to partition precipitation phase has been published in Remote Sensing. This was a collaborative effort by Dr. Claire Pettersen and colleagues from FMI, UW, and NASA:
Recent work outlining the capabilities of the Precipitation Imaging Package (PIP) to detect snowfall characteristics has been published in Atmosphere. This was a collaborative effort by Dr. Claire Pettersen and colleagues from FMI, UW, and NASA:
Dr. Claire Pettersen and colleagues published a paper in the Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology outlining the snowfall modes at the enhanced observing suite at the National Weather Service in Marquette, Michigan:
Dr. Claire Pettersen was awarded a grant with the NASA Precipitation Measurement Mission (PMM) science team. Our group will be researching the impacts of high-latitude atmospheric rivers on precipitation processes:
