My name is Jeremy Gibbs. I am a Research Meteorologist at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory. My research includes computational and theoretical studies of atmospheric boundary-layer flows, turbulence modeling, land-surface modeling, parameterization of boundary-layer and surface-layer interactions, and multi-scale numerical weather prediction. I am currently working on projects to improve atmospheric models in the areas of scale-aware boundary-layer physics, heterogeneous boundary layers, and other storm-scale phenomena.

New National Science Foundation Project: The Heterogeneous NBL
I am happy to announce that my 3-year, $725,000 proposal to the National Science Foundation with colleague Dr. Rob Stoll was recently awarded.

The project starts today and is titled:

Understanding and Modeling the Role of Horizontal Heterogeneity on the Dynamics of the Nocturnal Boundary Layer Across Scales
