Jane Harrell

Atmospheric Sciences


Jane is a senior majoring in atmospheric sciences. She has been involved in a variety of research projects ranging from minimizing microfiber contamination in oceanography lab samples, to statistical analysis and visualization of climate data for a forthcoming textbook on general circulation of the atmosphere and ocean. Most recently, Jane is spending the 2018 summer as a research intern in the SOARS program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research working in the Hydrometeorological Applications Program (HAP). As a SOARS protégé, Jane is completing original research with HAP’s Computational Hydrology group modeling climate change impacts on the water balance in her hometown’s Green River Basin. Upon obtaining her undergraduate degree, Jane plans to continue to graduate school for hydrology. She hopes to integrate her atmospheric science background with hydrology to research the impacts of climate hange on rivers and watersheds for water, energy, and ecosystem management. In her spare time, Jane enjoys spending quality time with her two daughters, husband, and cat, Tilly. One of her favorite places to be is camping with her family in Gifford-Pinchot National Forest, somewhere at the base of Mt. Adams.
