Tony Mucia is a master’s student in natural resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Climate Assessment and Impacts specialization. He got his bachelor’s degree in Meteorology-Climatology from UNL in 2016. Tony began work at NDMC as an undergraduate senior in 2015. He assists on NDMC projects such as Multi-Hazard Tournaments and the Evaporative Stress Index(ESI). His research focusses on assessing the accuracy of remotely sensed groundwater from NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite system. This assessment will lead to incorporating the changes in water level into models and other usable products. Tony’s thesis may also incorporate other drought indicators such as ESI and Vapor Pressure Deficient (VPD).
B.S. in 2016 from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in Meteorology-Climatology
