UofL Storm Chasers
In May 2018, Dr. Jason Naylor (Geography and Geosciences/Physics and Astronomy) led UofL students on an eight-day storm observation course.
The group traveled over 3,000 miles across the Great Plains in search of severe weather. Students analyzed weather maps, observations, and numerical models to create daily forecasts. These forecasts were used to guide the group to areas of potential storm activity.
Although the weather was abnormally quiet for late May, students directly observed the formation and structure of severe storms on several occasions. We hope to offer this course again next summer.

The trio also visited UofL Today with Mark Hebert to discuss their experience.
