Start Date
Elizabeth Asher
University of British Columbia I outline a three-pronged research plan to improve air-sea flux estimates of biogenic gaseous precursors for natural aerosols and to identify their marine sources. The research will use data from a planned NCAR field campaign, Lagrangian particle dispersion modeling, and a novel field-based application of NCAR?s Trace Organic Gas Analyzer (TOGA). TBD TBD 1/2017
Feng Chen
University of Goettingen I plan to collaborate with Matthias Rempel in HAO and to build realistic models for flux emergence and formation of active region corona. By treating the proper coronal energy balance, we can synthesise observables from the models that are directly comparable with real observations. This comparison will help us to better understand the energy input into the corona and the coronal dynamics. 1580 chenfeng 1/2016
Alvaro de la Camara
Ecole Normale Superieure I work on stratospheric dynamics, my recent research being focused on gravity wave (GW) parameterizations for use in climate models. I use GW observations in the stratosphere from balloon flights to constrain and improve the GW schemes. My work also involves the use of recent theoretical developments to link the parameterized GW momentum fluxes to their sources in jets and frontal systems 1874 acamara 9/2015
Hannah Christensen
University of Oxford The representation of model uncertainty in atmospheric models using stochastic parametrisation schemes, including: providing a firm, theoretical basis for such schemes; developing new stochastic schemes; evaluating the impact of these schemes on forecasts made on weather, seasonal and climate timescales, including both probabilistic verification and the impact on the model's climatology. TBD TBD 1/2017

Columbia University I am a climate dynamicist who employs paleoclimate evidence and climate modeling to better understand past hydroclimate changes. 1720 coats 10/2016
Kevin Dalmasse
Observatoire de Paris My work is focused on studying the structure of the solar atmospheric magnetic field and its role in solar activity. It relies on analytical and numerical modeling within the MHD framework, as well as on the development of new statistical methods and the analysis of observational data (optical, EUV, spectro-polarimetric). 2492 dalmasse 10/2016
Tanausú del Pino Alemán
The Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias Solar plasma diagnosis through the polarized radiation transfer modeling in suitable models of the solar atmosphere. Analysis and study of the underlying atomic physics in the formation of the solar polarized spectrum. Deduction of the physical properties of the solar atmosphere through forward modeling of the polarized radiation transfer. 8323 tanausu 1/2016

Falko Judt
University of Miami The overall goal of my research is to better understand and quantify the predictability of high-impact weather events in the tropics. I study multiscale interactions on the tropical atmosphere, ranging from convective scales to the global-scale circulation using both high-resolution models and aircraft observations. TBD fjudt 1/2016

Keith Musselman
Coldwater Lab, Barrier Lake Field Station My research interests and experiences are on the topics of terrestrial hydrology, hydrometeorology, and remote sensing in mountainous and forested seasonally snow-covered environments. The overarching goal of my research is to evaluate the availability of freshwater in these environments and the physical mechanisms and pathways responsible for its evolution. 8381 kmussel 10/2015
Fashid Nazari
University of Ottowa The primary objective of this research is to develop accurate, efficient, and stable numerical methods for complex transport and mixing phenomena in the atmosphere (in unified models of the atmosphere for climate and weather prediction applications across multiple scales). The secondary objective is to study and improve the corresponding turbulence models. 2481 fnazari 9/2015
Ying Pan
Pennsylvania State University My primary research interests are in turbulence and dispersion. The research topic I would like to study for NCAR ASP is to improve the representation of plant canopies in regional and global models such as WRF. I will use large-eddy simulation, flume experimental data and CHATS data (provided by Edward Patton at NCAR). 8199 yingpan 10/2015
Sara Paull
University of Colorado, Boulder My primary research focus is on the societal impacts of climate change. Specifically, my work seeks to understand the ways in which climate can influence infectious disease in order to make predictions about the potential effects of climate change on disease risk. In this proposal I plan to study how climate can influence the timing of human West Nile virus infections. 2894 sarap 12/2015
