University of Nebraska Director
Clint Rowe

Clinton "Clint" Rowe is a Professor of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and in the School of Natural Resources in the College of Arts and Sciences at The University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Clint's research interests include the physical meteorology and climatology, specifically the fluxes of energy and mass between the surface and the atmospheric boundary layer. "Much of my research has focused on radiative fluxes between vegetated surfaces and the atmosphere, but I have also conducted modeling and field studies investigating energy exchanges over the Greenland ice sheet and their impact on the amount and extent of surface melting." He is currently involved in several research projects concerning land surface-atmosphere interactions in the Nebraska Sand Hills. Rowe and his colleagues are also working to model the climate of Pangea during the Jurassic using the National Center for Atmospheric Research Community Climate Simulation Model to simulate the climate of 200 million years ago as part of our research into the environment that led to development of vast eolian formations in what is now the southwestern United States. Additionally, Rowe teaches courses on physical meteorology, as well as graduate seminars in boundary-layer meteorology, climatic change and other topics in meteorology and climatology. He holds a doctorate in climatology from the University of Delaware.
