Welcome to the Nesbitt Research Group, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, School of Earth, Society, and EnvironmentUniversity of Illinois!

We use the latest in satellite, ground-based, and airborne platforms to study the dynamics, microphysics, and climatic impacts of precipitating cloud systems. Specific research foci of our group include:

  • Cloud systems: morphology, dynamics, and microphysics
  • Remote sensing of precipitation using radar and passive microwave techniques
  • Mesoscale meteorology
  • Surface-atmosphere interaction and hydrometeorology

Feel free to examine the links above to find out more about our group.
