Congratulations to the Atmospheric Science Program on receiving the Cooperative Observer Award from the Nation Weather Service for the University's weather station near Lindley Hall. The station is one of the oldest of Kansas' stations. Pictured, left to right: Richard McNulty, Johannes Feddema, Curtis Hall, Bill Newman of the NWS, David Mechem, Donna Tucker, and Terry Solcum.

Atmospheric science grad students working with Prof. David Mechem do the heavy lifting to install a disk array in the Atmospheric Science Linus cluster. The disk server provides an additional analysis capacity and 60 Terabytes of storage for regional climate simulations, cloud-resolving models, and eddy-covariance tower data. These computing resources support our research projects funded by NSF EPSCoR, NOAA, Department of Energy, Office of Naval Research, and NASA.
