Re: Introduction

Hi Tim,

Unidata support stands ready to help you with your set up of your LDM/IDD node. Could you use the following support address to contact our support group: address@hidden
for assistance.

Our support group is great and they will be able to assist you and provide recommendations to make a very efficient set up at UMD.

Thanks again for your interest in Unidata. We're eager to have you as an active member.

Hi Linda,

    Thanks for the welcome!  I'm looking forward to working with the
Unidata group.  I view our collaboration with Unidata as essential for
the growth of our new undergraduate program.  We've just begun our 3rd
year and we already have 50 majors.  Quite a few of them have asked for
more training in forecasting and weather data analysis. To give them a
chance at a job with the NWS, they need to be familiar with Unidata and
AWIPS II.  We've approached our college for funding to build a
forecasting/data analysis lab as well as purchasing a server that can
handle the LDM.  I've also asked for funds to purchase a smart
projection system and a few high end GPU systems that can be linked to
the projectors.  I think this will be a great way to foster group
discussions on forecasting, weather in general, and climate.  I'm
keeping my fingers crossed that we receive a positive response.  I will
be keeping my eyes out for announcement of the equipment awards and
I'll be sure to sign up to the email list.

    While I don't have very much forecasting experience I'm hoping to
learn.  All of my research has been using air quality/ climate, and
atmospheric chemical models to study composition. My goal is to build a
network of people in our area (students, staff, scientific public (NOAA
NCEP is a short walk from here)) that are interested in weather to form
a core group that will really help this take off.

     Thanks for your support!  It's very much appreciated and I look
forward to talking with you in the future.
