Welcome to Vortex2, Year 2!
(posted by Karen Kosiba)
The last minute preparations are underway for Vortex2-2010! Here in Boulder, CO, at the Center for Severe Weather Research (CSWR), we are in the process of getting our 3 radars (2 of which have been upgraded to dual-polarization/dual-frequency radars--more on that later!) and 6 pod vehicles packed and ready for the season. We have 27 crew members from across the county (and across the pond--Germany, U.K., and the Netherlands).
Everyone is excited for the season to begin--as you can tell from Herb Stein's (left) and Paul Robinson's (right) expressions of happiness (or lack of sleep)!
Follow us throughout the season to learn more about all of our adventures in the field!
