CoRP Science Symposium – August 10-11, 2010, Fort Collins, CO

August 10 & 11 2010 - Hilton Fort Collins - Hosted by RAMMB/CIRA

“Satellite Applications to Mesoscale Meteorology and Oceanography”

CIRA hosted the 2010 Cooperative Research Program (CoRP) Science Symposium, which was held at the Hilton Ft. Collins August 10 and 11. The purpose of this workshop was to highlight research and application development within NESDIS and its Cooperative Institutes. The theme of this year’s symposium was “Satellite Applications to Mesoscale Meteorology and Oceanography.” Both oral presentations and posters were chosen, and student participation was strongly encouraged. Please use the links on the left side to explore the talks and posters that were presented at this year’s symposium, and send any questions to Dan.Lindsey AT noaa.gov.
