Dr. Pat Fitzpatrick was recently featured in Around the Oval, the alumni magazine of Colorado State University.

The article discusses his research into the BP oil spill and building several computer models which simulate how the oil may impact the Gulf Coast region should a Category 5 hurricane make landfall along the coast. Each model is based on different control factors such as the oil's location and the storm conditions operating on it during a possible landfall.

Dr. Fitzpatrick received his Ph.D. in Meteorology from Colorado State in 1995.
