Dr. Lareau is part of the Fire Weather Research Laboratory team here at San Jose State University. The team’s research could lead to better ways of predicting the spread of wildfires. Using modern active remote sensors (Radar and Lidars) to probe atmospheric processes, Dr. Lareau’s research examines atmospheric dynamics across a range of scales. Specific research topics include: Wildfire plume dynamics, Boundary-Layer and Cloud Interactions, Mountain Valley Cold Air Pools, Synoptic-Scale Storm Tracks.
