Department Seminars

Environmental and Climate Sciences Department (ECSD) seminars are typically scheduled on Thursdays at 11 a.m. in the Large Conference Room in Bldg. 490. Special times, dates, and locations are indicated on the schedule.

These seminars are all open to the public. Seminar attendees who do not have a BNL ID badge should arrive up to 30 minutes prior to the start of the seminar and check-in at the Main Gate. A government-issued photo ID is required at check in. Inform the gate attendee that you are here for the Environmental and Climate Sciences Department seminar (ECSD seminar).

For other details, or to schedule a seminar, contact the Seminar Committee.

    "Observational insight into the relationships between large-scale conditions and the properties of boundary-layer precipitation"

    Presented by Katia Lamer, City College of New York (CCNY)

    Reanalysis and observations collected at ENA are analyzed to document the properties of rain and boundary layer clouds during general subsidence conditions and following cold front passages. Clouds in the wake of cold fronts exhibit on average a 10% higher propensity to precipitate and higher rain-to-cloud fraction than clouds found in general subsidence conditions. The identification of monotonic relationships between rain-to-cloud fraction with surface forcing and boundary layer stability parameters as well as between virga base height with stability and humidity measures further supports that large-scale conditions impact precipitation variability. That being said, these relationships are less clear than those established between cloud and rain properties suggesting that cloud macrophysics have a more direct impact on the properties of rain than the large-scale environment.
