Congratulations to Emily Luschen!! Emily was awarded not once, but in two conferences at the 102nd AMS Annual Meeting for her poster presentation: “Updates to the GOES-16 Split-Window Precipitable Water Satellite Product.” This is work that Emily did as an NSF/REU student at Colorado State University/CIRA with Jack Dostalek and Lewis Grasso.

Congratulations also to Andrew Muehr!! Andrew presented his undergraduate research on “The Effect of Mid-Level Shear on Supercell Characteristics and Evolution” at the First Year Research Experience (FYRE) spring poster session.

This summer, three of the group members – James, Theresa, and Emily – will be embarking on a field campaign in Taiwan and Japan as part of the PRECIP 2022 field campaign (Prediction of Rainfall Extremes Campaign in the Pacific) to study extreme rainfall. After two years of pandemic delay, we’re excited to have this opportunity to learn more about what drives heavy tropical rainfall, thanks to the National Science Foundation!
