EVS radar meteorologist Scott Collis named to Popular Science “Brilliant 10” list

October 3, 2013

EVS is home to the DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Radar Products Team, which is responsible for developing value-added products based on data from the ARM scanning centimeter radars. In this work, the team members use specialized knowledge of the way electromagnetic radiation interacts with rain droplets, snow, and ice to retrieve information about clouds, precipitation, and storms. The team’s overarching goal is to support the ARM Program in its mission to understand atmospheric processes in order to improve the next generation of climate models.

Dr. Scott Collis, the EVS scientist leading the Radar Products Team, has recently been named one of Popular Science magazine’s “Brilliant 10” for his research on climate and meteorology. The Brilliant 10 are a group of 10 researchers under age 40 who have made revolutionary contributions to their fields. The current annual list is the magazine’s 13th. Read more about Dr. Collis in the full article on Argonne’s website.
