Welcome SOARS Intern Briah' Davis

Briah\' Davis

Briah' Davis joined the Unidata Program Center as a SOARS summer intern on May 30, 2017. This fall Briah' will be a senior at the University at Albany, SUNY, where she is majoring in Atmospheric Science and Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics.

SOARS, Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science, is an undergraduate-to-graduate bridge program at UCAR designed to broaden participation in the atmospheric and related sciences. The program is built around research, mentoring and community. SOARS participants, called protégés, spend up to four summers doing research in atmospheric and related sciences. This is Briah's second summer in the program and her first at Unidata.

Welcome Summer Intern Tyler Wixtrom

Tyler Wixtrom

Tyler Wixtrom joined the Unidata Program Center as a software development summer intern on May 30, 2017. Tyler has just graduated from Valparaiso University with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology and will be starting work toward a Master's degree in Atmospheric Sciences at Texas Tech University in the fall. His main interests are in Numerical Weather Prediction and the transition of research to operational applications, as well as in the development of software tools in support of forecasters and researchers. Tyler will be working in development of the MetPy package, with the goal of adding user-friendly functionality for vertical interpolation to various coordinate systems, such as isentropic or isobaric coordinates.

Unidata to Launch Observational Satellite

GOES-16 image
Satellite images are really cool.

Following on the heels of NOAA's successful launch of the GOES-16 Earth observing satellite in November 2016, Unidata is moving ahead with plans to launch its own orbiter early next year. Unlike GOES-16, which provides a wide variety of observations including rapidly refreshing a full-disk imagery of the Western hemisphere, the first Geostationary Unidata Observing Satellite (GUOS-1) will focus its instruments on observations of the area immediately surrounding the Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado.

Unidata Program Center Welcomes John Leeman

John Leeman

John Leeman joined the Unidata Program Center software development team on January 30th, 2017. John obtained bachelor's degrees in meteorology and geophysics from the University of Oklahoma in 2012, and a PhD in geoscience from Penn State in 2017. He has worked in research fields ranging from gas hydrate thermodynamics to SODAR and boundary layer instrumentation, and did his doctoral work in earthquake physics. John's software development experience includes work on the seafloor process simulator at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and telemetry analysis tools for NASA's Morpheus lunar lander project. The common thread amongst all of these projects was “the development of new tools and software to attack previously intractable problems.”

As a researcher himself, John brings first-hand knowledge of how scientists want to interact with their research tools to Unidata. He joined the Unidata Program Center because, he says, “making well tested and reliable tools with which to conduct reproducible science is probably the largest challenge and most needed area of innovation in research today.”
