Press Release: “Improving the Understanding and Representation of Atmospheric Gravity Waves using High-Resolution Observations and Machine Learning”

October 2020

Joan Alexander, Alison Grimsdell, and Martina Bramberger are embarking on a multi-institutional NSF project that is the subject of a press release from Rice University.

Alexander offers that this talented team of scientists from Rice, NWRA, NYU, and Stanford are using Loon-balloon measurements, high-resolution models, and machine learning tools to improve how climate and weather forecasting models account for unresolved atmospheric gravity waves.
