Dr. Edgar Herrera Appointed IP3 Atmosphere-Land Surface Modeller

Dr. Edgar Herrera, PhD has been appointed the IP3 Atmosphere-Land Surface Modeller for the Improved Processes and Parameterisation for Prediction in Cold Regions Network at the Centre for Hydrology. Dr. Herrera is a graduate of Univ. du Quebec, INRS-ETE in Quebec and UQAM in Montreal where he specialized in regional climate modelling and statistical hydrology. He brings a specialized capability to run atmospheric models to the Centre for Hydrology and will be focussing on running the GEM-LAM and CLASS for IP3 research basins and investigating atmospheric feedbacks from improved land surface representation of snow, ice and soil frost processes. He will also be examining scaling relationships and problems associated with running large scale atmospheric models over complex terrain to drive hydrological models.
