The Research Experience in ALpine Meteorology (REALM) will rely on the natural scientific laboratory, provided by the nearby Wasatch Mountains and adjacent urban areas, to enhance student awareness of societal challenges, such as water availability and air quality, that requires an understanding of the influence of alpine terrain on weather and climate processes.
The Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Utah is the leading program for weather and climate education and research in the Intermountain West and is recognized internationally for its expertise in atmospheric studies related to mountain environments, including: measurement, analysis and prediction of orographic precipitation; fire weather applications; and air quality.
The objectives for REALM are to:
-Engage students in full-time active research.
-Provide professional development opportunities for students.
-Motivate students towards STEM careers by constructing an engaging, inclusive, and supportive cohort experience that includes exposing them through site visits to employment opportunities in the weather, water, and climate enterprise.
-Improve students' science literacy and oral and written communication skills.
REALM has been designed to welcome and support underrepresented students from a variety of backgrounds in a highly inclusive environment. Applications from minority serving institutions and 2-year institutions are strongly encouraged.
