Atmospheric Dispersion Modeling System

Use an atmospheric dispersion modeling system to predict the movement of atmospheric contaminants from many locations around the world. The system currently makes predictions for atmospheric dispersion in the Great Lakes region. A student working on this project will make several modifications to this system, including adapting it to other parts of the world. The project will involve comparing atmospheric dispersion patterns in different parts of the world and under different weather conditions.

Tasks and responsibilities:

The student will need to learn how the modeling system works, and make the required modifications.
