Climate & Space is very pleased to announce that department alumnus Dr. David Wright has won a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Data Assimilation and Model Coupling from the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR).
The goal of the fellowship program is to develop a Great Lakes regional environmental modeling system that integrates NOAA’s Next Generation Global Prediction System (NGGPS), Great Lakes Operational Forecasting System (GLOFS), and National Water Model (NWM) with advanced data assimilation (DA) capability.
Dr. Wright has joined Prof. Christiane Jablonowski’s research team and also closely collaborates with NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL). His project is titled ‘Improving Lake Effect Snowfall Forecast Capability using a Coupled High-Resolution Weather, Hydrodynamic Ice Modeling System.’
Congratulations, Dr. Wright!
