Storm studies…

Graduate students and scientists from UAHuntsville’s Atmospheric Science Department and the Earth System Science Center studied the storm that passed through north Alabama on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. One group of students went to Lawrence and Franklin counties in west Alabama, collecting wind, humidity and pressure data both in the elevated and valley areas near the edge of the Bankhead forest, where they unexpectedly ran across an air traffic control radar station operated by the FAA. Other members of the severe weather research group set up the MAX Doppler radar in New Market to study waves (both gravity and other) that interacted with the approaching storm system.
