Atmospheric Sciences Students at American Meteorological Society Meeting, Jan. 23-27

Atmospheric Sciences students and faculty will be presenting on their research at the upcoming American Meteorological Society 102nd Annual Meeting in Houston, January 23-27, 2022.

Professor Sergey Kravtsov will present “A Moist Quasigeostrophic Coupled Model: MQ-GCM2.0,” with his Ph.D. student Ilijana Mastilovic as second author.

Graduate student Andrew Westgate will participate in a town hall session on the Climate Consensus. The Climate Consensus is a network of concerned students, faculty, and staff from various institutions, including UWM, who seek to inspire the next generation of scientists to speak up for truth and our future. Their goal is to close the consensus gap between experts and non-experts on human-caused climate change. Andrew will also present Creating a Multi-Institution Outreach Network to Improve Climate Literacy
