CESSRST Scholar Harold Gamarro presents at NOAA Seminar Series
NOAA EPP/MSI CESSRST Earth System Sciences and Remote Sensing graduate scholar, Harold Gamarro successfully delivered a talk on February 23, 2023, as part of the NOAA Science Seminar Series. The presentation was titled, ‘Modeling Complex 3-D Coastal-Urban Impacts on Air Quality Distribution: Evaluation Based on High-Spatial-Resolution NO2 Retrievals.’
In 2021, Harold was selected to the inaugural class of EPP/MSI Graduate Fellows. This work was a summary of his experience after completing a 1-year residency with the NOAA Chemical Science Laboratory under the mentorship of Dr. Brian McDonald.
About the Speaker: Harold is a PhD student in mechanical engineering at the City College of New York, supported by the NOAA Center for Earth System Science and Remote Sensing Technologies (CESSRST-II). In 2021,he was selected to the inaugural class of EPP/MSI Graduate Fellows.
Harold’s research focuses on expanding our understanding of how cities interact with the atmosphere in the context of a changing climate, as well as the consequences these interactions have on the exposure of people and infrastructure to weather extremes (Heat and Air Quality).
About the EPP/MSI Program: The EPP/MSI is an education and workforce training program whose goal is to provide financial support for the education, training, professional development, and graduation of students pursuing postsecondary degrees in NOAA mission STEM, policy and natural resources management disciplines. The EPP/MSI program has 3 components, an Undergraduate Scholarship Program, four Cooperative Science Centers and the Graduate Fellowship Program.
