"To begin, we're coupling our crop model to the hydrology model to get a dynamic snapshot of water availability [in the area]." Developed in the Earth System Science Center (ESSC) at UAH, the Watershed Hydrologic Stress Tool (WHyST), the coupled crop/hydrology model, uses data from NOAA and NASA weather reports, crop and hydrology models, and water consumers such as city water systems and power companies.
An experimental tool to give farmers, government officials, environmental groups and other stakeholders an improved estimate of how much water is available in a specific watershed is scheduled to go on line this summer.

"This process isn't as simple as we previously thought," said Dr. Themis Chronis, a research scientist in the UAH Earth System Science Center.
The mystery of why most of the most powerful lightning on Earth happens over the oceans isn't solved, but a few of the usual suspects are no longer in custody.

Gilchrist-Petty said the book applies to a mix of modern-day dark side topics of concern, such as sexualization, microaggressive communication (insults against people of other races and gender), cyberbullying and triggers of social media jealousy.
Eletra S. Gilchrist-Petty, Associate Professor of Communication Arts at UAH said because dark side behaviors pervade human communication on every level, it was necessary to write the book Contexts of the Dark Side of Communication. She noted too, that computers, social media and forms of technology embolden people and provide anonymity to say and do hurtful things that they may not say or do in face-to-face communication.

"We're really pleased in the interest of potential and new students in getting involved in research at UAH. Almost half of the projects have a shadowing student this year." UAH has supported research and creative work experiences for undergraduate students in all fields of study for more than 10 years.
More students than ever are undertaking activities this year within a research or creative work project lasting for 10 to 12 weeks in the Research or Creative Experience for Undergraduates (RCEU) summer program at UAH.

"Here in Huntsville, we are part of the team that develops sophisticated computer algorithms to analyze the data and accurately tease out as much information as we can about each candidate signal," research scientist Dr. Tyson Littenberg at UAH's Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research (CSPAR), says.
A UAH researcher had an integral role again as scientists with the LIGO Scientific Collaboration observed gravitational waves - ripples in the fabric of spacetime - for the second time.

"Amanda's diverse skill set and research experience have given her unique and valuable insights into the needs and uses of Earth science data."
Before Amanda Weigel makes her invited talk next month at the biannual meeting of the Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), she has to decide what she wants to talk about.

"Most projects I approach with a positive attitude: why would I not be able to do this? I think that's all the History Department. I was blessed to be mentored by a wonderful faculty who taught their students to think critically and be confident in our abilities. They never gave you a choice when faced with a difficult project - you just had to do it! So I've taken that attitude forward," says McCool.
The Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society (TCPS) knew it would take a special person to tackle the immense job of restoring the historic Drish House to its former 19th century glory. It would have to be someone with both the vision to see past the building's crumbling exterior and bat-infested interior and the fortitude to stand up to the ghost of Mrs. Drish, said to have haunted the property since her husband's death. Fortunately, they found th...

"We are looking at the genetic basis of behavior and how the environment shapes genomes over generations," Dr. Luciano Matzkin says.
How much impact do genes have on behavioral changes? Dr. Luciano Matzkin wants to find out. Efforts by UAH researcher to better understand the genetic underpinnings of ecologically relevant behaviors have recently resulted in an award of $612,000 from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

"The idea behind the BEST Experience is to put engineering tools and experiments into the hands of high-school students such that they can learn what engineering at a university is like," said Dr. Jennifer English, Associate Dean and Professor (ECE) of the UAH College of Engineering.
Rising high school students grades 11 and 12 will have the opportunity to participate in The BEST Experience (Be an Engineering STudent), a week-long residential program sponsored by UAH College of Engineering.

The DSI is an international professional association that advances the science and practice of decision making through its regional, national, and international conferences and its two academic journals.
On April 1, 2016, Dr. Jatinder (Jeet) N. D. Gupta, eminent scholar and professor in the College of Business Administration at UAH, began his one-year term as president-elect of the Decision Sciences Institute (DSI). He will then become the DSI's president on April 1, 2017, after which he will serve as the DSI's immediate past president from March 31, 2018, until March 31, 2019.

TGFs have been the subject of intense study since their discovery. Topics scheduled for discussion during the workshop include observations and theory, future instruments, atmospheric high-energy radiation phenomena and related thunderstorm and lightning science.
UAH and its Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research (CSPAR) are hosting an international workshop on Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes (TGFs) on July 13-15 at Wilson Hall.
