The Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences' Andrea Lang will spend the next three years studying polar vortex changes in the stratosphere.
With more than 200 students visiting from area schools, the University at Albany celebrated 'Family Earth Day' with a host of fun, hands-on activities and demonstrations.
Ask anyone who's ever stocked up on bread and milk in anticipation of the big snowstorm that turned out to be a mere dusting -- predicting the weather is never easy.
Arctic sea ice melt loss is leading to extreme warm weather events over Greenland, and contributing to the rise of the global sea level, according to a recent study led by atmospheric scientist Jiping Liu.
The University at Albany is hosting its 4th annual Family Earth Day, April 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. in University Hall. The event, which is geared toward children and families, offers a wide range of activities to appeal to a broad youth audience, as students learn how clouds are formed, tour UAlbany's solar observatory or watch a sheepherding demonstration.
April 22, 2016 - This week over 35 faculty members and graduate students attended the 32nd Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology, organized by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
March 31, 2016 - UAlbany Post-Doc, Dr. Alan Brammer and Professor Sharan Majumdar from the University of Miami explain how ECMWF data guided them to the right locations to plan the deployment of aircraft in a field experiment on tropical cyclone intensity and structure change.
March 31, 2016 - Project aimed to quantify the forecast skill of stratospheric regime changes and its precursors, specifically, blocking events is funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. This three year award for $363,882 also supports Professor Lang as a participant in NOAA’s newly formed S2S Prediction Task Force.
March 29, 2016 - DAES is pleased to announce the funding of a new, three-year, $450,000, NOAA Collaborative Science, Technology, and Applied Science (CSTAR) Program grant, “Development of improved diagnostics, numerical models, and situational awareness of high-impact cyclones and convective weather events”. The new CSTAR award marks the sixth such grant DAES has received, totaling more than $1.8 million.
January 13, 2016 - Lawrence C. Gloeckler's presentation, "Tropical Cyclone Contributions to Madden–Julian Oscillation-Associated Extratropical Circulation Patterns" receives the AMS sward for best presentation at the 4th MJO Symposium at the 96th AMS Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
January 12, 2016 - Alicia M. Bentley's presentation, "Noteworthy Cool-Season Extreme Weather Events over Central and Eastern North America Associated with Strong Extratropical Cyclones" received the first place oral presentation award at the 28th Conference on Climate Variability and Change at the AMS Annual Meeting.
