University of Wyoming Department of Atmospheric Science chair and Professor Bart Geerts recently was named a fellow of the American Meteorological Society (AMS).

The AMS has more than 13,000 members, including researchers in atmospheric, oceanic and hydrologic sciences, but less than half a percent of the membership receives this distinction, a recognition of outstanding contributions in the field of atmospheric and related sciences.

The AMS election of fellows follows an in-depth evaluation process by other members. New fellows are elected each year by the AMS Council.

“This recognition is quite an honor, and it reflects on nearly two decades of productive research at the University of Wyoming,” Geerts says. “Reflecting back on that, we are fortunate to have access to the UW King Air research aircraft, with novel and ever-evolving instruments, allowing truly transformational atmospheric observations, and also to have ready access to high-performance computing through the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center.”

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC) is located in Cheyenne

Geerts and his graduate students conduct research into cloud-scale to mesoscale atmospheric processes, using aircraft measurement and a variety of radars. The main tools have been the Wyoming Cloud Radar aboard the UW King Air aircraft and the NWSC computers.

The 2019 AMS fellows, including Geerts, will be admitted formally at the 100th AMS annual meeting in Boston in January.
