Holly Norton to Help NCEP

Climate Dynamics doctoral student Holly Norton was awarded a competitive Summer Student Internship at the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). She will be working at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland. At NCEP, she will be working to improve the land component of climate models. The models calculate the movement of water below the land surface, which affects the availability of soil moisture. The soil, in turn, interacts with the atmosphere. The work is related to Holly’s PhD dissertation and builds on her academic background in both climate dynamics and geology.
