On March 17, SIUE hosted the University of Oklahoma RaXPol mobile radar. Students were able to see the radar in action and learn about radar systems. A big thanks to Dr. Yadong Wang (SIUE Electrical and Computer Engineering) for coordinating the event and to Drs. Tian-You Yu and David Bodine of OU for a fantastic presentation to our students, especially those in my GEOG 452 (Weather Forecasting) and GEOG 314 (Climatology) courses.
Our manuscript on the travel of tornado debris has been published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS). The work examines the travel of several historical markers that were impacted by an EF-2 tornado on 23 May 2017.
Many thanks to my co-authors on the work, John Knox (University of Georgia), Jared Rackley (National Weather Service), and Nick Grondin (Louisiana State University).
