Synoptic Climatology Laboratory

The synoptic climatology laboratory performs research involving numerous applied climatological issues that affect humans and other organisms around the world. Synoptic climatology is a holistic approach to evaluate weather and climate. Synoptic climatologists attempt to characterize an entire weather situation that exists in a given area at a given time, to gain a better understanding of both the atmospheric environment and its effects on the organisms that experience it. The lab is led by Dr. Laurence S. Kalkstein.
