Vivek Agarwal

Snowfall Rate Website

Vivek Agarwal worked with mentors Jun Dong and Yongzhen Fan to develop an interactive website for viewing the NOAA snowfall rate product, which allows users to select location and time and which satellite data to use.

Domenic Brooks and Alex Friedman

Lightning Captured

Domenic Brooks and Alex Friedman helped mentor Daile Zhang set up and run a network of high-speed Raspberry Pi cameras to record lightning strikes for comparison with ground and satellite data.

Kaley Du

VIIRS Image Quality

Kaley Du, supported by mentor Xi Shao, developed code to reveal fine details by combining VIIRS Composite Color Images and Day/Night Band and then added Infrared Bands to identify fires.

Vesta Gorosh

Precipitation CNN

Vesta Gorosh found that a Convolutional Neural Network encoder decoder algorithm showed promise in creating end-to-end surface precipitation retrievals using multiple satellite sensors (LEO & GEO) over complex surface types.

Rida Kahn

Predicting BT on Land

Rida Kahn worked with Xingming Liang this summer to develop a forward radiative emulator. Her talk was entitled “Developing a Deep Learning Model to Predict ATMS Brightness Temperatures on Land.”

Linfred Kingston

ABI Image Registration

Linfred Kingston worked with Fangfang Yu this summer using different machine learning algorithms to improve ABI image registration, which is the geometrically alignment of one dataset with others.

Clarence Lam

Satellite Detection

Clarence Lam worked with Lin Lin and Changyong Cao (NOAA) to apply machine learning to satellite images. He was able to train the algorithm to detect hurricanes and atmospheric rivers.

Zichao Liang

TC Intensities from Temp Anomalies

Zichao Liang worked this summer with Lin Lin to use machine learning to identify the intensity of trpoical cycles (TC) from ATMS temperature anomalies.

Agnes Liu

Soil Moisture Preprocessing

Agnes Liu assisted Jifu Yin in developing a preprocessing system for soil moisture observations from the International Soil Moisture Network (ISMN) that visually identifies the location of the data.

Stephanie Marquez

Desert Soil Moisture

Stephanie Marquez was the NOAA EPP/MSI Earth System Sciences and Remote Sensing Fellow and she collected soil moisture data in the Chihuahuan Desert this summer for comparison with co-located satellites.

Liem Nguyen

Data to Climatologies

Liem Nguyen continued his work with Liqing Jiang. This summer he developed a program that automatically linked NOAA Projects to the NCEI Archive for the North American Coastal Climatologies.

Lukas Ozpaker

Precipitation Validation

Lukas Ozpaker took on the challenge of investigating the potential of the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network (CoCoRaHS) to be used fpr NOAA Satellite Precipitation Product Validation.

Terrence Pierce

Lightning Data Blending

Terrence Pierce worked with Daile Zhang for this year to develop a user-friendly portal that allows researchers to download lightning data for the same event from both satellites and ground sensors.

Ashmita Pyne and Damian Figuero

Virtual Reality Data

Ashmita Pyne and Damian Figuero became part of Guangyang Fang’s project to explore creative ways to use virtual reality (to analyze and visualize 3D weather and climate datasets.

Seung Joon Rhee

City Growth by Satellite

Seung Joon Rhee worked on applying machine learning techniques to feature detection in VIIRS images with Bin Zhang and Xi Shao. He used the VIIRS Day-Night Band to look at city growth over time.

Yucheng Shao

Snowfall in Extreme Cold

Yucheng Shao worked with Yongzhen Fan this summer developing a machine learning snowfall detection algorithm for the GPM microwave imager (GMI) that helped to improve accuracy in extremely cold temperatures.

Chao-Wei Tu

Digital Synchronous Detector

Working in the Radiometer Lab with Hu Yang, Chao-Wei Tu designed and implemented a Digital Synchronous Detector for the Prototype Microwave Radiometer.

Wei Wang

Cloudy & Clear Sky Detection

With the help of Bin Zhang and Sirish Uprety, Wang Wei used a tensor-flow similarity index for detecting the cloudy and clear sky observations from a series of VIIRS images.

Zhuoyu Yang

Radiometer Controls

Zhuoyu Yang, helped by Jun Dong in the Radiometer Lab, developed a data collection system and temperature control for the Prototype Microwave Radiometer.

Jennifer Zhou

Wildfires & Soil Moisture

Jennifer Zhou came to Jifu Yin with her own project: to determine if soil moisutre data could be used to predict wildfires. She used the Random Forest Regression Model to get her preliminary results.
