NCAR ASP Summer Colloquium

I participated in week 1 of the NCAR ASP Summer Colloquium on “Quantifying and communicating uncertainty in high-impact weather prediction” held in Boulder, Colorado, on 15-26 July 2019. It was a great experience to interact with the students and other lecturers, particularly in discussions of the ongoing heat wave and severe convective storms east of the Rockies! My lecture on synoptic-dynamics and synoptic-scale predictability is available here.


Hi everyone! My name is Tom Galarneau and I will be joining CIMMS/NSSL as a research scientist starting in June 2019. Broadly my expertise is in synoptic-dynamic and mesoscale meteorology, but more specifically in the dynamics and prediction of hurricane formation, evolution, and post-landfall hazards. The latter has much overlap with the ongoing research efforts at CIMMS/NSSL to improve short-term predictions of hazardous weather such as tornado, wind, hail, and flash floods. Please browse around my webpage and reach out if you have questions, see potential collaboration, or would just like to talk about the weather!
