Steve Cohn

My atmospheric science research centers on development and application of new instruments and measurement techniques for meteorology – both remote sensors and in-situ instruments. I primarily study the atmospheric boundary layer, which is the lowest few km of atmosphere. I also have a strong interest in hands-on education in meteorology.

In addition, I am studying modes of transportation with a focus on high-speed tube transportation – basically hyperloop and other evacuated-tube or maglev modes. This includes the technical trade-offs (for example tube and vehicle size, cost, speed, method of magnetic levitation, etc.), historical analogs such as the 19th century Atmospheric Railways, status of leading and emerging companies and technologies, the regulatory and financial environment, and management models.
