URAP: Piloting a Kytoon

UC Berkeley undergraduates are encouraged to apply for a URAP opportunity to become a pilot of a winched kytoon (a balloon/kite hybrid) that will be assembled and flown in Berkeley during the spring semester. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a field campaign in Oklahoma (all expenses paid) during a week or two in the summer of 2019. Applications open January 15, 2019 and close January 28 at 9:00 am. To learn more, click here.

Accepting Graduate Students

Prospective PhD students are encouraged to contact Prof. Romps directly to inquire about our ongoing projects in climate science, fluid turbulence, high-resolution numerical simulation, and the use of satellite data. Applications to UC Berkeley's Department of Earth and Planetary Science are typically due in December for admission to the graduate program in the fall. For details, see the EPS page on graduate admissions.
