The Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Laboratory (MMM) aims to benefit society by better understanding and predicting hazardous Earth systems.
MMM Visitor Open House
MMM has a vibrant Visitor Program, but have you ever wondered how you could get involved? The NCAR/MMM laboratory will hold a virtual open house on September 28, 2023, from 1:00 - 2:00 P.M. MDT.
This Open House event is an opportunity for graduate students, faculty, and postdocs to learn about the MMM Visitor Program and the science taking place within the lab, with hopes of promoting new interactions and collaborations.
How flying through storms improves precipitation forecasts
How forecasters view and trust artificial intelligence in operational forecasting
How forecast information is communicated across a community facing severe weather
How we can approach the S2S forecasting problem using a fully coupled earth system model
How we develop and demonstrate forward-looking, cutting-edge weather prediction systems
How we model interactions between air particles (like dust/smoke) and cloud droplets
We will also feature:
A description of our visitor Program
Virtual breakout rooms for Q&A about research projects and collaboration opportunities

MMM VISITOR PROGRAM
MMM provides opportunities for university graduate students, professors, and community researchers to collaborate with staff members on projects that further their research objectives, invigorate science, and align with the laboratory's goals. These include advancing the science of atmospheric prediction by developing more accurate and computationally efficient numerical models, improving effective systems of data assimilation, and creating better representations of processes not currently resolved in numerical weather prediction (NWP) models. MMM is also seeking visits of scientists, at all career stages, who have not visited MMM before, including those from minority serving institutions.
Accordingly the main areas of MMM research include:
NWP research focused on advanced computational strategies and community models
Data assimilation research focused on assimilating remotely sensed satellite and radar data at convective and/or mesoscales
Dynamical meteorology research focused on a range of mesoscale weather systems, including thunderstorms, mesoscale convective systems, extratropical cyclones, tropical cyclones, mountain waves, and sea breezes
Boundary-layer and turbulence research focused on basic and applied problems concerning the structure and turbulent dynamics of atmospheric and upper-oceanic boundary layers
Physical meteorology research focused on physical and thermodynamic processes in the atmosphere, especially cloud and precipitation physics
Regional climate research focused on improving understanding and prediction of high- impact weather and climate
Societal research focused on the communication and use of weather-related information
Led by some of the most highly regarded scientists in the field, these research areas form the MMM Program.
