LSC faculty to participate in Lake Champlain climate change research

Dr. Janel Hanrahan, a faculty member in the Atmospheric Sciences Department at Lyndon State College, will participate in the recently funded five-year $20 million NSF EPSCoR project, led by University of Vermont. Dr. Hanrahan will work with a climate modeling team to dynamically downscale climate model projections over the Lake Champlain Basin. Specifically, the team will investigate the impacts of climate change on extreme weather events in the region. In addition to her own work on the project, Dr. Hanrahan will supervise several undergraduate students who will have the opportunity to conduct and present unique research.[easy-media med="3846"]
