The American Meteorological Society (AMS) celebrated its 20th annual student conference in January, 2021. The AMS is the premier scientific and professional organization in the United States promoting and disseminating information about the atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic sciences. Each year, hundreds of graduate students attend this meeting to share their novel research with the AMS community.
This year, master’s students Danielle Cohn, Inigo Peng, and Miye Nakashima from the University of Michigan’s School for Environment and Sustainability were awarded the prestigious Outstanding Student Conference Poster from AMS. Their master’s project research with the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) on Great Lakes Ice Cover: Extending Data Record Back to the 1890s, Identification of Key Teleconnection Patterns was recognized as one of the top graduate student research projects at the conference. The students are mentored by Drs. Ayumi Fujisaki-Manome (CIGLR), Philip Chu (NOAA GLERL), and Yuchun (Yoyo) Lin (CIGLR). Congratulations to the entire team!
