Jacob Carlin

Research Scientist

My research focuses on dual-polarization radar and its applications for improving numerical weather prediction models. I develop and use a number of simple microphysical models and simulate the attendant hypothetical radar signatures in order to compare them to observations and learn more about the underlying processes. I am particularly interested in what dual-polarization radar signatures can tell us about the latent heating and cooling rates of certain microphysical processes, and how that information may be best incorporated into numerical weather prediction models to improve short-term forecasts.
