University at Albany researcher Qilong Min is working with the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center to improve forecasting of weather that specifically affects the output of such renewable energy sources as wind farms and solar arrays.
The most advanced weather observation system in the nation is under construction in New York State, led by the University at Albany and its partners, the National Weather Service (NWS) and the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. The NYS Mesonet is a network of 125 state-of-the-art weater stations designed to support better planning for extreme and dangerous weather events.
A growing number of scientists, policy makers, researchers, and private enterprises are coming to the University at Albany’s Albany Visualization and Informatics Lab (AVAIL), a data science engineering team that is pioneering web-based solutions that put visualized, organized data at a client’s fingertips.
University at Albany atmospheric scientists are tackling critical climate and weather issues across the globe. Thanks to the NYSUNY 2020 program, research is being conducted on West African monsoons, hurricanes, shrinking glaciers, and forecasting models.
The largest association of Earth and space science educators nationally, NESTA has more than 1,200 members across the country. It works extensively with federal agencies, foundations, professional societies, media, industry, and educators to facilitate and advance excellence in Earth and space science education. The partnership is aimed at helping strengthen STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education at UAlbany.
Since 1987, Professor Wei-Chyung Wang at the University at Albany’s Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) has served as the U.S. Chief Scientist for the “Climate Sciences” agreement between the U.S. Department of Energy and China’s Ministry of Sciences and Technology. Wang studies climate changes in China, using both climate models and climate information extracted from historical documents.
