Exceptional Undergraduate Presentations

Last summer Chelsea Snide, an undergraduate atmospheric science student from the University of Albany, did an internship with AOES professor David Straus. The American Meteorological Society selected Snide and 3 other students for “Exceptional Undergraduate Presentations” at its 2019 Annual Meeting.

Chelsea’s presentation, based on her internship work, was on “Large Scale Observational and Model Analysis of the Unusual 2015-2016 El Nino Event: Implications for California Precipitation.” The work was a collaboration between her, Straus, and AOES climate scientists Erik Swenson, part of a long-term effort by Straus and others to better understand how El Nino can be used to better predict variations in United States weather.
