About Michael Negale

Ph.D. student at Utah State University (USU), actively involved in research studying the characteristics and effects of short-period atmospheric gravity waves on the dynamics of the upper atmosphere. I am currently working with Dr. Mike Taylor, of USU, and Dr. Kim Nielsen, of Utah Valley University.
I am currently working on the Mesospheric and Airglow Imaging (MAID) project to investigate the presence and dynamics of short period (<1 hr) gravity waves over the interior of Alaska. We use an all-sky imager located at Poker Flat Research Range (PFRR), in Alaska, to measure spatial and temporal characteristics of the prominent gravity waves.
