Gonzalez (CREST, CCNY) and Dr. Thomas Smith (NOAA, Maryland)

"Using NOAA's Optimum Interpolated Sea Surface Temperature (OISST) product, a recent warming of SSTs has been detected in the Caribbean as a result of my previous research work with my CREST and NOAA mentors. Over the next year, I will advance my research on Caribbean sea surface temperatures (SSTs) and investigate possible links and/or correlations to precipitation within the region and the U.S. " - Equisha

Carlos L. Pérez Díaz is currently persuing his Ph.d in Civil Engineering focusing on Water Resources and Land Processes in particular Snow Hydrology/Snow microwave emission modeling. He is mentored by Dr. Reza Khanbilvardi (Director, NOAA-CREST) and  Xiwu "Jerry" Zhan (NOAA)
