Ben Trabing awarded for poster presented at AMS Annual Meeting
The AMS Committee on Weather Analysis and Forecasting honored Ph.D. candidate Ben Trabing with an award for the poster he presented at the 100th American Meteorological Society meeting in Boston this month.
Trabing’s poster, “Understanding Rapid Intensity Changes in Official Hurricane Intensity Forecast Error Distributions,” exhibited how well forecasters predict rapid changes in hurricane intensity and how forecasts have improved with time. It also investigated some of the factors that may contribute to large errors in order to better predict intensity changes in the future.
“I am very thankful to have received the award, particularly because this was the 100th AMS meeting and one of the most attended,” said Trabing.
Trabing is advised by Associate Professor Michael Bell.
