Daniel Pollak, a graduating
senior, won 1st place in the physical science category at the annual
Penn State Undergraduate Exhibition for his poster titled,
"Understanding Changes in the Arctic Basin Sea Ice Mass Budget:
Implications from Melt Season Characteristics and the Surface Albedo
Feedback". He conducted this research at NCAR with Marika Holland
and David Bailey this past summer. Currently he is doing a
climatology of Polar Lows in Antarctica for Geography professor
Andrew Carleton. In addition, he is a listed as a co-author on a
paper by Alexandra Jahn from NCAR titled, "Late 20th century

which was submitted earlier this month to the Journal of Climate.
Congrats to Dan!
