Two NC State CSTAR Students Presented with AMS Graduate Fellowships

Jason Davis and Keith Sherburn were both formally presented with their 2011 American Meteorological Society (AMS) Graduate Fellowships this week at the 92nd Annual AMS Meeting in New Orleans.  Jason Davis was awarded with the fellowship sponsored by the NASA Earth Science Program and Keith Sherburn was presented with the fellowship sponsored by NOAA’s National Weather Service. A list of the recipients of the 2011 AMS Graduate Fellowships and Undergraduate Scholarships is available on the AMS web site.

Both students are graduate research fellows and M.S. candidates at N.C. State University and are participating in the current CSTAR project. The objectives of the CSTAR project are to improve the understanding and prediction of hazardous convective and landfalling tropical weather systems in the Southeastern United States. Jason and Keith’s participation in the CSTAR project is focused on severe convective storms forming under conditions of marginal instability and strong vertical wind shear.

Keith was congratulated by NWS Director Dr. Jack Hayes as this year’s recipient of the AMS Student Fellowship sponsored by NOAA’s National Weather Service.

One Response to Two NC State CSTAR Students Presented with AMS Graduate Fellowships

  1. Kevin M. Smith says:

    Congratulations to both Jason and Keith! It is always great to see North Carolina State University students recognized in the field of meteorology, not only for their own accomplishments and work, but also for any resulting attention this draws to the university, the CSTAR projects, and the ongoing collaboration between regional NWS offices, NCSU, and others that this blog reports on.
