Katerina's focus this summer was surface ozone pollution, working with Professor Elizabeth Barnes. Surface ozone pollution will be a concern in the coming decades. Katerina analyzed modeled surface ozone's seasonal cycle variability, long-term variability, and its correlation to atmospheric circulation. She then showed which effects are due to changing emissions of ozone precursors and which are due to meteorological changes.

Katerina's research poster, Surface Ozone and Climate Change, may be found here.

Katerina is a junior with a major in geophysics at the Colorado School of Mines. Her research interests vast including climate dynamics, climate modeling, severe weather, using remote sensing in meteorology and other geophysics areas including seismology and geohazards.

A native of Arvada, Colorado, she enjoys watching baseball, fishing, blogging, playing the piano and ukulele and writing for The Oredigger campus newspaper at Mines.
