NEPARS

2018 SUMMER RESEARCH

During the 2018 summer, REU students worked on a variety of research projects and all plan to present their research during at least one scientific conference. Typically, REU research projects explore a topic within one of the following areas: mesoscale and synoptic weather, microclimates, biometeorology, mountain meteorology, modern climate, hydrometeorology, and paleoclimate.
