research overview

  • Dr. Nigro's research is focused on boundary layer dynamics in the Antarctic. Her research uses a combination of observations and numerical weather prediction system output to diagnose the processes that drive weather in the Antarctic. She uses neural network algorithms, such as self-organizing maps, to analyze large data sets.
