Department News

Latest Five Supercomputer Projects Have Direct Application to Wyoming Issues including:

- A project, titled “High-Resolution Simulations of Precipitation, Snowpack, and Stream Flow in Wyoming,” will study the effect of climate variability on the precipitation, snowpack dynamics and stream flow in Wyoming over the next 30 years.

Bart Geerts, a UW professor in the Department of Atmospheric Science, leads the project. Team members include Yonggang Wang, a UW post-doctoral student in atmospheric science, and Changhai Liu, a project scientist II in NCAR’s Research Applications Lab.

- A project, titled “Investigating the Impact of Wildfire Aerosols From Southern Africa on Stratocumulus Over Southeast Atlantic Ocean,” will use computer simulations of wildfire aerosols to investigate how these aerosols affect the formation of clouds over the southeast Atlantic Ocean.

Xiahong Liu, the Wyoming Excellence Chair in Climate Modeling and a UW professor of atmospheric science, leads this joint National Science Foundation/Department of Energy funded project. Liu’s collaborators include Zheng Lu and Yiquan Jiang, both post-doctoral students, and doctoral student Mingxuan Wu and Yun Zhou.

UW Scientists Contribute to Cloud-Seeding Research

UW Scientists Contribute to Cloud-Seeding Research

The University of Wyoming played a key role in a nearly decade-long study by the state that concluded cloud seeding has some effect, with a 5-15 percent positive impact on snow accumulation shown after the weather modification technique is used.

UW Researchers Contribute to Paper Examining High Winter Ozone Levels

UW Researchers Contribute to Paper Examining High Winter Ozone Levels

Shane Murphy (far right), stands next to a mobile lab used to measure methane and VOC levels coming from individual oil and gas wells. Murphy is the co-writer of a Nature paper that examines high ozone levels near oil and gas wells during the winter. Also pictured are, from left, Robert Field, associate research scientist; Dustin Snare, graduate student; and Jeff Soltis, associate research scientist, all in the UW Department of Atmospheric Science.
