Group shares in DOE research grant

Our group, in collaboration with Profs. Jeff Trapp and Sonia Lasher-Trapp in the department shared in a 3 year project funded by the Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ASR) Atmospheric Systems Research (ASR) program to study the parameterization of convection in climate models, using observations from the DOE site in the Southern Great Plains as observational testbed.  Data from the comprehensive Midlatitude Continental Convective Cloud Experiment (MC3E), which was a joint field program involving NASA Global Precipitation Measurement Program and ARM investigators conducted in south-central Oklahoma during the April to May 2011 period, will provide the necessary observations for this study.
