Curious about the influence of midlevel shear on supercell behavior? Look no further than this paper now out in JAS early online release, led by Andrew Muehr, junior undergraduate of our group:
Muehr, A. J., J. H. Ruppert, Jr., M. D. Flournoy, J. M. Peters, 2023: The Influence of Midlevel Shear and Horizontal Rotors on Supercell Updraft Dynamics. J. Atmos. Sci., DOI: 10.1175/JAS-D-23-0082.1
Major congratulations to Andrew on his first pub!
The Convective Storm Dynamics group is recruiting to fill multiple new GRA positions to begin in Fall 2024 either at M.S. or Ph.D. levels.
One GRA position focused on examining tropical convective-scale dynamics. Supported by the National Science Foundation.
Two GRA positions (tied to multiple School of Meteorology research groups) to study the interaction between the tropics/poles and midlatitudes to advance our understanding of blocking events. Supported by the Department of Energy.
