Evaluation of Arctic Stable Boundary Layer Dynamics During the 2018 ISOBAR Campaign
Presented by Brian Greene

Brian is a Meteorology Ph.D. student working with the Center for Autonomous Sensing and Sampling at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK. His primary project focuses on characterizing turbulence based on measurements of temperature, humidity, and wind speed from remotely piloted aircraft systems. In his talk he will present preliminary results using data from the 2018 ISOBAR field campaign that took place above the sea ice off the Finnish island of Hailuoto that indicate that clouds in the wintertime Arctic boundary layer have strong implications on low-level turbulence when compared with cloud-free conditions, which could have significant outcomes for improving how numerical weather prediction models represent stable boundary layers.

Low-Cost Sensor Integration for Autonomous Exploratory Studies of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
Presented by Gustavo Britto Hupsel de Azevedo

Gustavo is a Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. student working with the Center for Autonomous Sensing and Sampling at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK. Gustavo’s main research focus is on integrating sensors and designing sampling systems for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). He will present on a low-cost, open-source autonomous sampling system for atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations.
