Schumacher and students studying how Indian Ocean weather affects the world
Texas A&M atmospheric scientist Courtney Schumacher and five students are joining an international team of researchers in the Indian Ocean to study how weather in that region affects conditions around the world. The project, Dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation, or DYNAMO, runs from Oct. 1 through Mar. 31. The Texas A&M group will be stationed at the main research site on Addu Atoll in the Maldives islands, where they will do radar research for the full six-month period.
