Trevor Alcott, son of Shirley and Phil Alcott of Bartlett, has received his PhD in atmospheric sciences from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City. He has been involved in multiple snow-related research projects and student career employment with the National Weather Service Office in Utah, while also serving as a research assistant at the university. His research has resulted in three published papers with a fourth, based on his dissertation, soon to be published. Much of his work has contributed to improving the accuracy of snow and avalanche forecasting methods.
Throughout his university career he has pursued his interest in mountain climbing begun in New Hampshire's White Mountains and continued in the high altitude mountains of the Western United States, Peru, and Bolivia. After a break hiking and climbing in Alaska he will begin a position with the Science and Technology Infusion Division at the National Weather Service Western Region Headquarters, Salt Lake City.
