Pengfei Xue Interviewed on Lake Climate Projection

image98360-persHOUGHTON — A Michigan Technological University researcher is leading the effort to create a comprehensive model for the complicated and diverse climate of the Great Lakes region.

Pengfei Xue developed a model combining climate and water models with assistance from Loyola Marymount University, LimnoTech and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory.

“When we have that component, the entire water cycle and surface water cycle would be complete. Then we could estimate the water level change over years.”

Xinyu Ye Selected as Best Student Poster Presentation at the 20th Conference on Air-Sea Interaction

Environmental engineering PhD candidate Xinyu Ye was selected as having the best student poster presentation at the 20th Conference on Air-Sea Interaction earlier this month.

Sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, the conference was held August 15-19 in Madison, Wisconsin.

Her poster, “Lake-Atmosphere Feedbacks in a Coupled Regional Climate Model Over the Great Lakes,” is about the two-way coupled regional climate modeling over the Great Lakes, which fits well with the research theme of Michigan Tech’s Great Lakes Research Center.
