- About Us
Mike Brown is a climatologist/meteorologist with interest in land-surface-atmosphere interactions. Mike has looked at the impact of heterogeneous surfaces upon formation regions of convection in Illinois and Mississippi. Mike has also studied severe local storms in the Mid-Atlantic region in an attempt to identify processes generated at the Earth's surface that augment the mesoscale atmosphere creating an environment of enhanced instability and shear. Outside of work Mike enjoys storm-chasing, playing with his dogs, and training for triathlons.
