Welcome!

The Schubert Research Group is led by Dr. Wayne H. Schubert of the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. Focusing on atmospheric dynamics, we study a variety of meteorological phenomena, including tropical cyclones, the Intertropical Convergence Zone, the Madden-Julian Oscillation, water vapor "black holes", and subtropical highs. We utilize the latest datasets and a full complement of models, ranging from the simplest barotropic model to a state-of-the-art non-hydrostatic model. By combining in-situ observations with satellite remote sensing and modeling, we continue to make significant contributions to our understanding of the atmosphere.

HP Workstation Logo Thank you HP!
In May 2008, Hewlett-Packard donated nearly $100,000 in hardware to the Schubert Research Group to support and enhance our tropical cyclone research program. The donated hardware includes 8 top-of-the-line xw8600 workstations and 8 widescreen monitors. Their generous gift is much appreciated, as it will enable us to run full-physics models, ensembles of simpler models, store large amounts of output, and visualize the data like never before.
