Dr. Griswold is pleased to present the Atmospheric Sciences Department's newest undergraduate course that merges meteorology and climate and the role they have and currently play in the development and of native cultures in the Pacific Islands: MET/ATMO 102: Pacific Climate and Cultures.

Fall 2015 Course

Dr. Griswold and her Lab Group "Cloud Aerosol Reserach and Education" (C.A.R.E.) will be participating in a NASA funded International Field Campaign called "ORACLES" of the coast of Namibia in Africa in Fall 2016-2018 studying stratocumulus clouds and cloud-aerosol interactions.


Next year's Expanding Your Horizons - Hawaii conference for young women in STEM will tentatively be on April 18th, 2016. Workshops, events, and volunteers are already being organized. Learn more here about how to volunteer and get involved in 2016 for the 3rd Annual event! Our goal is to have 25 workshops for 250 young women!


Learn more about the research being done in Dr. Griswold's Lab Group "Cloud Aerosol Research and Education". Here you'll meet the graduate students and undergraduate students in the lab along with their research topics including: biomass burning aerosols, pyrocumulus convection, model-satellite intercomparisons of aerosol-cloud interactions, satellite based lidar vertical profiles of aerosol and aviation meteorology impacts on air travel efficiency.

Dr. Griswold is a dedicated teacher and thoroughly enjoys teaching both fundamental undergraduate courses and advanced graduate courses. Click on the link below to learn more about the courses she usually teaches and ones she has in mind for development! Courses include:

MET/ATMO 101 - "Introduction to Meteorology," MET/ATMO 102 - "Pacific Climates and Cultures," MET/AMTO 611 - "Satellite Data Applications."


Dr. Griswold has participated in numerous international and national field campaigs aimed at better understanding warm cumulus clouds, precipitation formation, coastal stratocumulus drizzle processes and cloud strucutre, and continental cumulus - aerosol interactions. Dr Griswold uses a Phase Doppler Interferometer (PDI and PDI-FPDR) to study cloud structure and properties including drop size, velocity and spacing in cumulus and stratocumulus.
