Larry Berg, an AMS Member, is a scientist in the Atmospheric Sciences and Global Change Division of the DOE's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington. He investigates the behavior of the atmospheric boundary layer in rural and urban areas using field measurements and regional weather prediction models. He focuses on turbulence in the atmosphere, boundary-layer clouds, and air pollution dispersion in urban areas. This has led to a new parameterization to of fair-weather clouds in global and regional scale models, and a modified regional prediction model coupled with an applied dispersion model for use in areas of complex terrain. Dr. Berg has PhD and MS degrees in atmospheric science from The University of British Columbia, and a BS degree in meteorology from the Pennsylvania State University.
