An internship in a NOAA laboratory during Summer 2016 provided a lesson in the value of collaboration.
Eric Burton, geography major in Appalachian State University’s Honors College, was awarded the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Ernest F. Hollings Undergraduate Scholarship that included a summer internship between his junior and senior years at NOAA’s Princeton, New Jersey, facility.
Burton’s 10-week paid internship at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory focused on checking weather models for accuracy and mapping predictions for the southern hemisphere. Specifically, Burton was monitoring tropical ozone concentrations in the lower atmosphere —“an air quality issue, and I examined it specifically in relation to the El Niño/Southern Oscillation and fire emissions.”
