PAOC Colloquium: Kristen Corbosiero (U Albany)
About the Speaker
My research focuses on the interaction between tropical cyclones and the environments in which they are embedded, with an emphasis on storm structure, the intensity and duration of convection, and the properties of clouds that comprise the storm.
I have tackled these problems using both observational data and numerical modeling, and my work has documented the critical role of storm asymmetries on both intensity and track.
About this Series
The PAOC Colloquium is a weekly interdisciplinary seminar series that brings together the whole PAOC community. Seminar topics include all research concerning the physics, chemistry, and biology of the atmospheres, oceans and climate, but also talks about e.g. societal impacts of climatic processes. The seminars generally take place on Monday from 12-1pm. Lunch is provided to encourage students and post-docs to meet with the speaker. Besides the seminar and lunch, individual meetings with professors, post-docs, and students are arranged.
