The Oregon Climate Change Research Institute is offering a summer
internship at Oregon State University in Corvallis, as part of the
REACCH project.

Description: Since 2000, volunteers have provided personal computing
time in support of an innovative research effort called
climateprediction.net, generating "superensembles" - that is, tens or
hundreds of thousands of simulations. One climatepredition.net project,
led by OCCRI, is generating a superensemble of regional climate modeling
for the western US. The student will develop innovative ways to display
these data (maps, plots, story lines) in ways that may be useful to
decision-makers in the inland Northwest.

Skills: atmospheric science, statistics, communication, policy. Should
be a junior or senior interested in graduate school. Preferred: some
exposure to a programming language or mapping software (R, IDL, Matlab,
Python, ArcGIS) and a keen interest in translating science for decision
makers.
