Berbery and Lukens to publish in Journal of Climate

ESSIC research professor Hugo Berbery and doctoral student Katherine Lukens have a new publication that will be released in the March 1 issue of the Journal of Climate. The research details the role of strong storm tracks on winter weather. Lukens used the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) to examine this relationship. She found that these strong-storm track winter storms represent about 16 percent of all winter storms in North America but 30 to 40 percent of winter precipitation.
