William A. Gallus, Jr.
Department:Geological and Atmospheric Sciences, Agronomy (Courtesy Appointment)
Research Interests: Mesoscale meteorology, numerical weather prediction
Brief description of current research:
Dr. Gallus’ research focuses on improved prediction of precipitation systems, especially mesoscale convective systems during the warm season in the central United States. His research primarily uses mesoscale and storm-scale numerical models. He also studies severe local storms and tornadoes, the use of innovative technology for geoscience education, and the impacts of convective systems on near-tropopause water vapor quantities. Additionally, he is actively involved with research exploring the use of new verification techniques. He has been a frequent invited summer visitor at the Weather Research and Forecasting model Developmental TestBed Center at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and is currently the chief-editor of the American Meteorological Society journal Weather and Forecasting.
