A physical scientist at the NOAA-funded Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystem Research, Eric Anderson studies the movement of water in the Great Lakes using high-powered computers.
Meteorologist, research scientist, amateur storm chaser, award winner, journal editor, mentor, and advisor—Adam Clark from NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) never misses an opportunity to help advance the science behind severe weather prediction and forecasting.
Colorado mountain hail may disappear in a warmer future
Summertime hail could all but disappear from the eastern flank of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains by 2070, according to a new modeling study by scientists from NOAA and several other institutions.
Drifting Buoys Track Water Currents in the Great Lakes Straits of Mackinac
When you’re watching a river or the waves on a lake, do you ever wonder where that water goes? If you threw a rubber ducky into the water, where would it end up? Scientists are studying the movement of water in the Straits of Mackinac, which connect Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, to figure out how the water moves around. This water movement can affect ship traffic, how pollution spreads, and where aquatic animals go.
Using high-powered computers, Kirsten Findell examines floods and droughts, land-atmosphere interactions, and land cover and land use change.
