WeatherBrains 233: WeatherBrains Platinum Card

WeatherBrains Episode 233 is now online (July 13, 2010). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

WeatherBrains - July 13, 2010

This week’s guest is Dr. Pam Heinselman, a research meteorologist at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory. She is part of the Doppler Radar and Remote Sensing Group. She is a graduate of St. Louis University. She also got her Masters there and her PhD from the University of Oklahoma. Her research interests are warning and forecast applications of weather radars, with an emphasis on phased array radar.

Our guest panelist is Owen Shieh, a graduate of Cornell University. He will be attending the University of Hawaii in the fall, where he will be working on his doctorate in meteorology. He recently had a paper published in BAMS about the local minima of tropical cyclones in the eastern Caribbean.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: So who really flies on the Hurricane Hunter aircraft? This week we take a look at each of the positions necessary to handle the work required to get the WC-130J into, through, and out of a hurricane or tropical system. You might be surprised to find out that the crew is not really that large.

TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of July 13th.

Listener SurveyListener Surveys: Okay, we continue to drive this topic into the ground, but we really do like to hear from you. Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to fill out the Listener Survey. The survey takes just a minute or two to complete and provides us with an opportunity to learn where you are and hear your thoughts and comments on the show. Click here to take the survey.

The WeatherBrains crew includes your host, James Spann, plus other notable geeks like JB Elliott, Kevin Selle, Dr. Tim Coleman, and Bill Murray. They bring together a wealth of weather knowledge and experience for another fascinating netcast about weather.
