1. Greenland Synoptic Climatology
- This was my PhD work and here are my latest results in poster form. This may take a second to load. AGU poster 2009.
- These results are published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, 2010: Changes in synoptic weather patterns and Greenland precipitation in the 20th and 21st centuries: 2. Analysis of 21st century atmospheric changes using self-organizing maps
- Future goals: What synoptic patterns are conducive to high Greenland melt years? Are we seeing these patterns more often? I use self-organizing maps (SOMs) as my technique of choice.
- Take me to Greenland! I've never been!
- I have a directed study student helping me dive into this lingering complex question. Shoot me an email if you'd like to read the current literature on the topic!
- Using a sort of global village project in the form of student blogs to create a global perspective on climate change and measuring that change via surveys. The results were published in the Journal of Geoscience Education in Septembet 2014.
- Agnotology-based teaching-- I will be taking part in teaching a MOOC using these techniques and I also use them in my classroom
a. Learner Centered Teaching
b. Annotated Syllabi
c. Teaching with Technology
- Student Generated Content-- students writing blog posts and commenting on the posts of others in an introductory Global Climate Change course (published and presented)
- Computer labs (exploration labs) that teach students several pieces of meteorology software and coding languages to senior meteorology majors in a synoptic meteorology course
- Using clickers to encourage full student involvement in an integrated natural science course, flipped classrooms, Just in Time Teaching.
