Profs. Kravtsov and Evans are two of this year’s twenty-one recipients of UWM Research Growth Initiative awards! These awards provide seed funding for early-stage, high-quality research. Prof. Kravtsov’s award will support research into the dynamics of mesoscale air/sea coupling, while Prof. Evans’ award will support research into interactions between tropical cyclones.

Finally, Prof. Evans was recently selected as part of the inaugural class for the AMS Early Career Leadership Academy! This academy is intended to develop the leaders of the weather, water, and climate enterprise of today and tomorrow. It culminates with a two-day leadership seminar in Washington, D.C. in late April.
