Timothy J. Lang

I have been a research scientist in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University for the past 10 years. I hold a Master’s (1997) and Ph.D. (2001) in Atmospheric Science from the same institution, while my Bachelor’s in Physics came from the University of San Diego in 1995. During 2001-2002, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard University. One major focus of my current work is investigating the links between a thunderstorm’s morphology and evolution, its meteorological environment, and the characteristics of the lightning it produces. I have authored or co-authored 26 peer-reviewed articles, including 7 in AGU journals, and have participated in 14 field experiments on 5 different continents. I received the Editor’s Award for the Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology in 2011.
