Study Atmospheric Sciences
@ University of Hawai'i at Ma̅noa



The goal of this research group is to understand both the dynamics and microphysics of shallow convection. We specialize in orographic and tropical clouds.  We use in-situ aircraft observations, ground-based platforms, fundamental equations, and numerical models to study the world around us.  Methods to use
Arduinos on kites and UAS to measure atmospheric properties are currently under development.
