ARPS Model Development Team
ARPS model development team is consisted of a number of scientists,
supporting staff and graduate students. Here is a list of people in the team,
along with their responsibilities involving ARPS as of September 1998. For a
general picture of the CAPS organizational structure,
Scientists from Coastal
Meteorology Research Program (CMRP) also made important contributions.
First, the scientists and supporting staff:
