Congratulations to this year's Department of Atmospheric Science student paper award winners.
Two winners were selected for this year's Riehl Memorial Award, given to a current M.S. student or recent M.S. graduate for a paper based on her/his M.S. research: Adele Igel (Sue van den Heever, advisor) was selected for her paper entitled The role of latent heating in warm frontogenesis. Nick Davis (Thomas Birner, advisor) was selected for his paper entitled Seasonal to multi-decadal variability of the width of the tropical belt.
James Ruppert (Dick Johnson, advisor) received the Alumni Award for his paper on the diurnal cycle of monsoon precipitation over Taiwan during the 2008 Terrain-Influenced Monsoon Rainfall Experiment (TiMREX). His work finds that there is a strong diurnal cycle of precipitation in Taiwan even on disturbed days when considerable cloud shading exists over the island. Rainfall tends to be shifted to higher elevations during disturbed periods in association with stronger southwesterly monsoon flow.
Each recipient receives an engraved plaque and a cash prize. Congratulations to all of this year's winners!
