My group is working on improving weather prediction by
pushing the envelope of high-resolution numerical
prediction. We are also applying these technologies
towards understanding the local implications of global warming.
Although my group gets some grant support, it generally does
not support the most innovative work, including testing new
ideas that are unproven or out of the mainstream. It also
does not provide funds for helping me hire undergraduates to
assist in research, something that not only can help them afford
college, but can change the direction of their lives.
You can greatly help my group's efforts by contributing to
Mass Weather Research Fund, which is a tax-deductible fund
at the University of Washington. You can get to that fund by

Here are some recent examples of contributions in action:
1. A local foundation gave funds to hire an
undergraduate to complete a comprehensive climatology of winds
around the proposed coal terminal near Bellingham.
2. Contributions were used to send one of my students to a research conference.
3. Funds were used to replace some defection hard disks on our local weather prediction system.
