FALLBROOK – David New of Fallbrook High School class of 2003 was awarded doctorate in oceanic and atmospheric science from the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland, May 23.

New graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in economics from California State University San Marcos and a master's degree in applied mathematics from San Diego State University.

New said, "The multicultural student environment and the dedication of the teaching staff at Fallbrook High helped to prepare me well for future academic achievement."

New was an Eagle Scout from local Scout Troop 737, enjoyed adventures such as summiting Mt. Whitney and diving off Catalina Island. Throughout his youth, he attended St. John's Episcopal Church in Fallbrook.

His parents, Marion and Dale New, have resided in Fallbrook since 1975. David's older brother, Daniel New, also a graduate of Fallbrook High School, received his master's degree in computer science from University of California San Diego in 2002.

David News's doctoral research involved the mathematical description of energy transfers and the creation of turbulence within the "boundary layer" of the Earth's atmosphere. A better understanding of the thin one-kilometer deep layer next to the Earth's surface is required to improve the accuracy of regional and worldwide climate models. New said he will continue his postdoctoral research at a government agency in the Washington area where he can contribute to the precision of existing climate models.
