Prof of Year Lupo1

June 7, 2010 | 9:39 p.m. CDT
Dr. Anthony Lupo taught his first Numerical Methods in the Atmospheric Sciences and Natural Resources class for the summer in MU's Agricultural building on Monday morning June 7. Lupo is holding up “punch cards,” which, before the late 1970s, were used to create a computer program. Lupo "wanted to show the students that computing has advanced much since then." The class consists of three graduate students who learn programming skills ultimately applied to weather forecasting and research.
