Peter S. Ray

Professor of Meteorology. Physical Meteorology. Ph.D. Florida State University, 1973. Past research has ranged from the theoretical assessment of scattering of light by hydrometeors to the use of Doppler radar data to deduce the co-evolving wind and water fields in severe storms. Current research interests expand these to include initialization and data assimilation problems in mesoscale forecast models, the use of airborne Doppler radar, thunderstorm electrification, microphysical development and evolution, retrieval of microphysical and dynamical variables in storms, and dynamical cloud modeling.
