Group member Adriana Bailey awarded AMS Urban Symposium Best Student Paper award.
Adriana Bailey has won a best student paper award from a recent AMS award. Here paper describes trends in inversion strength in the central/western US. She found a number of remarkable changes in the inversion occurrence in radiosonde and reanalysis data - something which had not been noticed before, and which has significant implications for air quality. The work appears in a paper submitted to the Journal of Applied Meteorology and CLimatology.

CU research team awarded $2M to use modern methods to understand ancient Greenland ice
The layers of ice cores from Greenland are often portrayed as pages in a book that record the history of the atmosphere. However, scientists have had difficulty interpreting exactly what details of the Arctic.s climate history are actually written. Is it a history of once-a-year major storms or of gradual, gentle snowfall? Where did that snow come from, and how was it altered after it got there? A recent NSF award made to a CU research team aims to use modern instrumentation to make the most comprehensive measurements to date of the meteorological and glaciological processes which create the stable isotopic record in the ice cores and allow the history of the ice sheet to be retold with an increased level of detail.
