As Director of CIMMS, Greg works with CIMMS scientists and associates to promote collaborative research between NOAA and OU scientists on projects of mutual interest to improve basic understanding of mesoscale meteorological phenomena, weather radar, and regional climate to help produce better forecasts and warnings that save lives and properties. His personal research projects are centered on improving our knowledge of the microphysical properties of clouds, and hence the representation of cloud processes in weather and Earth system models.  All of this is further described in Prof. McFarquhar’s website.
