This award is given to the top Teaching Assistant for exellent teaching of meteorology at the elementay level. Three other graduate students (Christopher Melhauser, Benjamin Green, Hans Chen) in Fuqing's group have received this award.
This award is to honor and recognize the outstanding research by a graduate student majoring in Meteorology.
Dr. Zhang is being recognized "for his exceptional scientific contributions in the atmospheric sciences, specifically in the areas of atmospheric dynamics and predictability, data assimilation, and ensemble forecasting of tropical cyclones".
This Award is given to an individual in recognition of research achievement that is, at least in part, aerological in character and concerns the observation, theory, and modeling of atmospheric motions on all scales.
The Banner I. Miller Award is presented to Drs. Fuqing Zhang, Yonghui Weng, John Gamache and Frank Marks “For valuable insights into incorporating real-time airborne Doppler radar measurements via ensemble data assimilation, leading to improvements in forecasts of tropical cyclone track and intensity”.
