Professor Rood Discusses Collaborator Shian-Jiann Lin in Science Magazine
Posted: April 18, 2017
Professor Rood is featured in the latest issue of Science Magazine in article about his collaborator, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) weather prediction modeler Shian-Jiann Lin. The article focuses on the prospect of being on the global leading edge of weather prediction modeling using a program developed by Lin.
From the article:
"For decades, Lin’s program has powered the long-term simulations of many climate models, including GFDL’s—one of the crown jewels of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Now, Lin’s domain is expanding to a different side of NOAA: the short-term weather forecasts of the National Weather Service (NWS). By 2018, Lin’s program will be powering a unified system for both climate and weather forecasting, one that could predict conditions tomorrow, or a century from now—and do it faster and better than current models. His work will soon be guiding mayors planning not just for snow plows, but also rising seas."
