Research

research overview

  • Prof. Lundquist leads an interdisciplinary research group in the Dept. of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC) at the University of Colorado, with a joint appointment at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Her research group uses observational and computational approaches to understand the atmospheric boundary layer, with an emphasis on atmosphere-wind energy interactions and growing activities in atmosphere-wildfire interactions.

courses taught

  • ATOC 1050 - Weather and the Atmosphere
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Introduces principles of modern meteorology for nonscience majors, with emphasis on scientific and human issues associated with severe weather events. Includes description, methods of prediction, and impacts of blizzards, hurricanes, thunderstorms, tornadoes, lightning, floods, and firestorms.
  • ATOC 4500 - Special Topics in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences - Upper Division
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Acquaints students at the upper division level with current research in atmospheres, oceans, and climate. Topics may vary each semester. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours within the degree as long as the topic is different. Students may register for more than one section of this course in the same semester. Recommended prerequisites and corequisites: will vary depending on topic. Recommended restriction: students with 57-180 credits (Juniors or Seniors).
  • ATOC 4770 - Wind Energy Meteorology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Explores the complex interactions of the atmosphere and wind energy generation. Surveys wind turbine designs. Explores planetary boundary layer dynamics, traditional and novel wind measurement methods, forecasting methods, wind turbine and wind farm wakes, wind farm optimization, sound propagation from wind plants, climate change impacts on wind resources and the impacts of wind plants on local environments. Recommended prerequisite: ATOC 1050 or ATOC major. Same as ATOC 5770.
  • ATOC 4950 - Honors Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Students work independently on a research topic under the guidance of a faculty member. A written thesis and an oral presentation of the work are required. Registration by arrangement and with consent of faculty mentor. Department enforced prerequisite: minimum 3.00 GPA.
