ATM Seminar with Dr. Corey Potvin

You are invited to attend an ATM seminar offered on:
Thursday, March, 12 2015 at 12:30pm in ASAC 319 with Dr. Corey Potvin.

Dr. Corey Potvin is a research scientist at the Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies (CIMMS) and NOAA National Severe Storms Lab (NSSL) in Norman, Oklahoma, as well as an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology. Dr. Potvin is an expert in convective-scale processes, analysis, data assimilation, and prediction. He is a member of NSSL’s Warn-On-Forecast team, whose objective is to develop and implement a real-time convection-allowing ensemble modeling system that will provide valuable forecast guidance to severe thunderstorm and tornado warning operations.

The NOAA Warn-On-Forecast (WoF) project envisions an increasingly critical role for convection-allowing ensemble modeling systems in NWS operations. This paradigm is expected to increase warning lead times for tornadoes, flash flooding, and other convective storm hazards. Dr. Potvin will be discussing recent WoF research efforts at the NSSL, as well as advice for students considering careers as professors or research scientists.
