Teaching and Research Interests:

Don Morton's initial research/teaching/development issues were in the use of computational methods to facilitate a better understanding of our cosmos through science. Over the past fifteen years, he has concentrated mostly in computational methods as applied to atmospheric sciences, with specific projects in numerical weather prediction and modeling the transport of “stuff” like radionuclides, volcanic ash, and wildfire smoke through the atmosphere.
