On 31 July 2018, Lindsay Hochstatter, Ronak Patel and Daniel Hueholt presented posters on their research at the North Carolina State University Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium.
Luke Allen and Levi Lovell served as mentors for all three students. Research topics were: the speed of cloud-clearing transitions, the internal structure of snow storms, and air temperature variability within urban heat islands.
Our research paper on “Abrupt cloud clearing of marine stratocumulus in the subtropical southeast Atlantic” by Sandra Yuter, John Hader, Matthew Miller (current and former members of the Environment Analytics research group) and David Mechem (University of Kansas) was released today by AAAS Science.
