Barnes, Elizabeth

Since the 1960s scientists have used the so-called "butterfly effect" to explain why we struggle to predict such extreme events with more than two weeks of advanced notice. But Elizabeth Barnes, Assistant Professor at Colorado State...

Zhang, Hongyan

Understanding Great Lakes Ecosystems

 | 

Zhang, Hongyan

Hongyan Zhang, Ph.D., uses computer models to investigate various topics, like the impact of invasive mussels on plankton, the occurrence of blue-green algal blooms, and the effectiveness of the phosphorous reduction program in Lake...

Overland, Jim

NOAA research meteorologist Shirley Murillo examines how hurricane winds change as they make landfall.

Lawrence, Bill

Monitoring river stage levels on the Southern Plains

 | 

Lawrence, Bill

National Weather Service hydrologist Bill Lawrence certainly knows the truth of a quote attributed to the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus: You could not step twice into the same river; for other waters are ever flowing on to you.

Brewer, Matt

Improving wind forecasts to increase reliance on renewable energy

 | 

Pan, WeiChiang

WeiChiang Pang is developing a framework for predicting failures of the building envelope -- including the foundation, roof, walls, doors, and windows -- with the goal of desigining a hurricane-resistant home.

Alin, Simone

Understanding the ocean's changing chemistry

 | 

Alin, Simone

Ocean chemistry is changing faster right now than at any time over the past 50 million years. “We are fundamentally altering marine ecosystems,” says NOAA oceanographer Simone Alin, Ph.D. With her colleagues at...
