semester, the Atmospheric Sciences department
conducts a seminar class. The spring semester
seminar class requires presentations by current
masters- or PhD-degree students. These seminars
offer the students a chance to hone their
presentation skills as well as visit with their
peers and colleagues about the different types of
research being conducted in the Atmospheric Sciences
Students held an informal
poster session based on their presentations (photos
below), at which fellow classmates and faculty
discussed the projects. They were also required to
submit an extended abstract as part of their final
work in the seminar class. The abstracts are
compiled into a booklet (see PDF link below), much like a conference
proceeding. Both the poster and extended abstract
give the students a feel for what they may have to
do as they continue in their working career.
Seminars presented by the
students this semester were:
- Chip Redmond:
"Height-based Characterization of
Structure-initiated Upward Positive Leader
Speeds Using High-speed Photogrammetry"
