At the National Center for Atmospheric Research facility in Colorado, Paul Mark Tag stands in front of an airplane that he used for his graduate-level research as a Penn State student. Tag instrumented the aircraft to measure the surface temperatures of Denver, Colorado, and then used a Penn State aircraft to do the same for Buffalo, New York. Through his research, he demonstrated that cities are warmer than the surrounding countryside. He also created a numerical prediction model that isolated the reasons for the differences.
