Seminar time in Meteorology! Here’s the stunning “back of the head” view (click on the photo for the non-squashed view). This was early in the semester, when Jon Contezac (grad student) was giving an overview of the Rim Fire and of the Clements’ groups’ activities there.
Congratuations to MS student Braniff Davis! Braniff recently won the Best Student Presentation award at the American Meteorological Society’s 10th Symposium on Fire and Forest Meteorology. He presented his paper, “Photogrammetric Analysis of a Fire Front Passage with Doppler Wind Lidar,” at this year’s meeting in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The award comes with a year’s subscription to the International Association of Wildland Fire’s Wildfire Magazine!
Braniff is now the third member of the Clements group to win such an award, following in the steps of Daisuke Seto and Dianne Hall.
Way to go you guys!! You rock!!
Come one, come all, to hear Colin McKellar defend his MS thesis work!

Two of our alums visited Monday (9/23/13) and spoke with our students. Our main guest was Ed Young (class of 73), who is now the Deputy Director at NOAA National Weather Service Pacific Region. His head office is in Honolulu, Hawaii, and he has oversight of multiple NWS offices scattered across the western Pacific. Ed really enjoyed his visit, and was especially impressed with our new instrumentation upstairs in our lab. Below are some snapshots.
Accompanying Ed was Kevin Baker (class of 82), currently the MIC (Meteorologist in Charge) at NWS-Monterey Bay! Here’s their facebook page. Kevin spoke to our students briefly about life in the NWS.
It was wonderful to have these alums come back to visit – and we are always happy to hear from you all out there in weather land!
Congratulations to Prof. Sen Chiao, who has been selected to serve on the Unidata Users’ Committee! Unidata is a “a diverse community of over 250 institutions vested in the common goal of sharing data, and tools to access and visualize that data.” It is supported under UCAR and by the National Science Foundation. As a member of the committee (which spans the US), Dr. Chiao will help steer the future work of Unidata.
In fact, most of us serve (or have served) on national-level committees. Prof. Alison Bridger is currently a member of the American Meteorological Society’s Board of Higher Education, and is currently part of the organizing team for the upcoming 23rd Symposium on Education at the 94th Annual AMS Meeting in Atlanta, GA.
