Steve Nesbitt is an assistant professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He studies clouds and precipitation using satellite data and ground based and aircraft observations in projects world wide. Using NASA and other measurements in tropical storms, and mid-latitude cyclones, his research group works to improve the understanding of precipitation processes so they can be better observed and predicted in computer models. Steve and his group have headed up the forecasting efforts for planning flights during the GCPEx field campaign.
