My name is Mark Raleigh, and I am a research scientist at the University of Colorado (Boulder). I am affiliated with (1) the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), hosted at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), and (2) the Department of Geological Sciences. I am also on the team of the Western Water Assessment.
A little about my research: I am interested in improving our understanding of watershed hydrometeorological processes through the leveraging of innovative measurement methods and modeling techniques. My specific focus is on physical processes that govern seasonal snowpack development in mountainous regions and interactions between snowpack and hydrologic, ecologic, and climate systems.
A little about me: I am a licensed professional engineer (Colorado). Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Advanced Study Program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO. In 2013 I completed my PhD in Dr. Jessica Lundquist’s Mountain Hydrology Research Group in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, USA.
This website details my ongoing research endeavors, provides biographical information and useful links, and information on how to obtain some of my scripts.
