Brian Colle, Ph.D. , is Assistant Professor in Atmospheric Sciences in the Marine Sciences Research Center. His research focuses in the structure and dynamics of meoscale phenomena in the coast zones of North America, as well as meoscale numerical modeling and forecasting. He was the first person to successfully obtain the three-dimensional flow over mountainous terrain using an aircraft Doppler radar and is also is conducting idealized simulations of the interactions of fronts with the steep coastal terrain of western North America.
Specific areas of expertise: Synoptic meteorology. Meoscale numerical modeling and forecasting. Coastal meteorology.
