October 2011

Congratulations to Farzan Ahmed for successfully defending his M.S. thesis! Farzan’s research focused on Statistical downscaling of daily output from GCMs and RCMs future predictions for the U.S. Northeast (to provide data needed for invasive species prediction). In collaboration with Dr. John Silander’s group in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, this work was supported by the USDA Invasive Species project and the UConn CESE (Center for Environmental Science and Engineering).  
Rui Mei attended the WCRP Open Science Conference in Denver (Colorado), where Rui presented his research on the impact of soil moisture on subsequent precipitation based on observational data and the comparison of this relationship among models, observations, and reanalysis data. This work was support by the NOAA CPPA program.
