AS Atmospheric Sciences
The 2011 Division Outstanding Young Scientist Award is awarded to Raquel Nieto for her outstanding contribution to the understanding of the moisture sources and precipitation in the atmospheric system.
I am a member of Environmental Physics Laboratory (EPhysLab) at the University of Vigo in Ourense, Spain, since 2000. Atmospheric science and climatology are the major research lines in my daily work. Climate research focused on the objective synoptic systems detection and the identification and quantification of moisture sources in different climatic regions are now my research activities.
