HCHS students presenting abstracts & posters at AGU

Congratulations to Masha G. and Helen L. who are both presenting their abstracts and posters at the American Geophysical Union centennial conference presently with scientists in the field.  Masha's work investigates the difficulty in forecasting tornado events by examining the predictive capabilities of existing indices, and suggests a more effective model.  Helen's work investigates the environmental and climatological consequence of microplastic pollution by looking at the potential linkages between microplastics and ice formation.  By applying these results to modeling of glacial dynamics, her work may lead to estimates of potential long-term impacts of these pollutants on sea ice growth, sea-ice-climate interactions and glacier and ice sheet mass balance.
Congratulations to both our scientists for this impressive work!
