Environment analytics is the analysis of large data sets at the intersection of observed environmental conditions, ecology and infrastructure.
We have a likely opening for a new graduate student for Fall 2019 to study cloud and mesoscale processes in winter weather using radar, soundings, surface meteorology, satellite, and model reanalysis datasets. Well qualified applicants will have taken a classes in Physical Meteorology and Mesoscale Meteorology and have strong programming skills. Prospective graduate students should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and include your resume and unofficial transcript for more information.
Current projects within our research group at North Carolina State University:
