School of Meteorology PhD candidates Race Clark and Zac Flamig recently taught a two-day training course at the Second Workshop on Geospatial Information in Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico at the invitation of the Center for Global Change and Sustainability in the Southeast (CCGSS), September 22-23 2015. This is the third such course they’ve taught this year: they were also invited to teach a four-day course at Windhoek, Namibia in April, and a three-day course at Puebla, Puebla, Mexico in May. Flamig serves at the lead developer of the training model and Clark serves as the lead author of the training course. Clark and Flamig have now taught variations of this course and others to over a hundred scientists, students, and officials representing nearly 50 countries. Both students are co-advised by Jonathan Gourley (SoM/NOAA/NSSL) and Yang Hong (CEES/ARRC). Funding for these international workshop training activities have been provided by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Partnerships for International Research (PIRE) program, and the OU HyDROS Lab ( Learn more about the Ensemble Framework for Flash Flood Forecasting (EF5) by visiting
