Intensive Summer School for Computing in Environmental Sciences
A Program for Computational Education and Internship Training for Students in Environmental Sciences
The goals of the ISSCENS program are to teach basic software engineering concepts to environmental science students, introduce students to high performance computing, enable students to work with advanced models used within environmental sciences, and to encourage durable and valuable connections among mentors and students.
It does not happen often that papers by EOAS professors are published in the same journal at the same time and just by coincidence, but it did happen this month. The following two papers were published in the Annual Reviews Journal.
El Niño Physics and El Niño Predictability by Allan J. Clarke
Dr. Patrick Taylor, an FSU Meteorology M.S. and Ph.D. graduate, has been “named one of 102 recipients of the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the federal government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their research careers.” Dr. Taylor received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2006, and 2009, respectively and began his NASA career immediately upon receiving the Ph.D. degree.
UCAR’s Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS) Program is accepting applications now through February 1st for undergraduate students to conduct summer research and to receive strong mentoring and community support.
Applications are open for the 2014 - 2016 NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship. The fellow will work with the Florida Coral Conservation Program in Miami, Florida. Applicants must be enrolled in a Master’s level or above degree seeking program. Compensation includes salary, benefits, and relocation.
The John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship provides a unique educational experience to graduate students who have an interest in ocean or coastal resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources.
