Undergraduate Students

Are you a GMU undergraduate student looking to get research experience related to weather, climate, or computing? Are you looking for a Senior project and research advisor? Are you a work-study or OSCAR student looking for a project?

Some potential projects include:
  • Developing an online forum for user interaction and support of a large science project
  • Making Real-time forecasts weekly forecasts with a global climate model
  • Blogging about the weather: explaining week-3 and week-4 predictions for general understanding
  • Why is the weather weird? Investigating the reasons for extreme weather and climate events
  • Website development for a large science project
  • Sharing code: developing a project space on GitHub and making existing codes available and well-documented for use by the scientific community
