|“Rudisill, a geophysics doctoral student, will bring his research involving high-resolution numerical weather models of mountain hydrologic cycles to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California.”|
“Working from a hydrologic perspective, Rudisill uses cloud physics equations to study the East River Watershed of the Colorado Rockies. Rudisill works with Lejo Flores, a Boise State geosciences associate professor who is also a co-investigator on ARM’s current Surface Atmosphere Integrated Field Laboratory (SAIL) field campaign. SAIL aims to improve the scientific understanding and modeling of processes connected to mountain hydrology.
The SCGSR award is open to graduate students who are currently pursuing a PhD in the areas of physics, chemistry, materials science, biology (non-medical), mathematics, engineering, computer or computational sciences, and specific areas of environmental sciences that are aligned with the mission of the Office of Science. The research projects of the awardees are expected to advance the overall doctoral research and training of the graduate student, while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories.”
