Aditya Murthi
Aditya
Home Institution: Texas A & M University
  NCAR Host Division: Mesoscale & Microscale Meteorology Division (MMM) in the Earth and Sun Systems Laboratory (ESSL)
  Thesis topic : Student is working on using satellite data to understand the variability of global precipitation on a variety of space and time scales.  The observational data will be used to evaluate the simulation of precipitation and outgoing longwave radiation (OLR) in NCAR climate models.
