Three members of the Department of Physics and Space Sciences – undergraduate students Nicholas Spiva and Michael Morrison and graduate student Mohammad Salem, presented their research work at the 2014 CEDAR workshop sponsored by the National Science Foundation. The students are research assistants in the department’s Geospace Physics Laboratory under the supervision of Associate Professor Ningyu Liu. Each presented a poster in studying lightning/thunderstorms and their effects in the middle and upper atmosphere. Nicholas was awarded one of two Undergraduate Honorable Mentions given for the student poster competition. The annual CEDAR workshop focuses on scientific studies to understand the coupling of different regions of Earth’s atmosphere.
