Xiquan Dong's Students Shine at AMS Summer Conferences

Monday, August 28, 2017

Kudos to Professor Xiquan Dong's students who were very busy this summer representing the UA HAS department at three major conferences!

Jingjing Tian and Peng Wu received two of only three graduate student awards given to attend the AMS 38th Conference on Radar Meteorology to be held this week in Chicago, Illinois. At the conference, Tian will present a poster, Estimation of liquid water path in stratiform precipitation system using MWR and radar measurements.

Jingyu Wang and Wenjun Cui recently attended the AMS 17th Conference on Mesoscale Processes in San Diego, California in July. Wang made an oral presentation, A 3-year statistical analysis of warm season convective rain diurnal cycle over SGP and NGP based on precipitation intensity classification. Cui presented a poster, Investigation of the maco- and micro-physical properties of three modes of mesoscale convective systems during the PECAN field campaign.

Earlier this summer in June, HAS students Ted McHardy and Peng Wu attended the 18th Annual NCAR WRF Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, where they learned about new system updates, discussed model development, and presented evaluations and applications of the WRF modeling system. This year's workshop focused especially on WRF development and application in the area of ensemble forecasting.

Congratulations to everyone for a very busy and highly successful summer!
