07.26.2018
Congratulations to Scott Braun and George Huffman on their selection as Fellows of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). They will receive their honors at the 99th AMS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona during the week of January 6–10, 2019.

Notes from the Field: Goodbye Pyeongchang

03.26.2018
The winter Paralympic games ended Sunday, March 18, and also with it the observation period of ICE-POP officially ended. It is with mixed feelings that we are leaving Pyeongchang

Notes from the Field- 2018 Winter Olympics End, But ICE-POP Continues

02.28.2018
The first part of the ICE-POP campaign ended last Sunday when the 2018 Winter Olympic Games were officially finished. However, we will closely monitor the weather and provide information from Pyeongchang during the Paralympics as well.

Overview

The Mesoscale Atmospheric Processes Laboratory investigates the physics and dynamics of atmospheric processes using remote-sensing data and high-resolution numerical simulations. Key areas of research are cloud and precipitation systems and their impact on regional and global climate. State-of-the-art cloud-resolving models are developed and applied at local to regional to global scales.

The Laboratory plays a key science leadership role in the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM), launched in 1997 and still operating, and the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, launched in 2014. Another central focus is developing remote-sensing technology and methods to measure aerosols, clouds, precipitation, water vapor, and winds, especially using active remote sensing (lidar and radar).
