San Diego Luncheons

Upcoming Program

WHEN: Thursday, March 5th, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

LOCATION:   5510 Overland Ave – 4th Floor Large Conf Rm 451

TOPIC: Predicting and Planning for Extreme Precipitation from Atmospheric Rivers

Dr. Anna M. Wilson is the Field Research Manager with the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. She earned her Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering under the direction of Dr. Ana Barros at Duke University in 2016. Her dissertation research focused on understanding the space-time structure of low level warm season precipitation processes in complex terrain, using an approach integrating numerical models and in situ and remote observations. During her Ph.D., Anna was able to amass extensive experience working with ground based instruments in the field through participation in a number of different NASA Global Precipitation Mission Ground Validation field campaigns. At CW3E, her interests are in supporting the development of physically based, accurate representations of atmospheric rivers and other extreme events in forecasts and projections through integration of in situ and remote sensing observations. Her responsibilities include overseeing ground-based field programs in California and coordinating airborne field campaigns over the northeast Pacific.
