WeatherBrains 78: “Chirp, Buzz, Boom”

WeatherBrains Episode 78 is now online (July 23, 2007). The netcast audio program for people who love weather.

In this week’s episode:

Katydid - www.britannica.comWeatherBugs: The entire cast of WeatherBrains has been called out by a new professor in town. If you heard Episode 77 you know there was a pretty big racket going on in the background. Well, a very special bug expert joins us to set the record straight. Join us for more chirping;

LightningRiding the Storms: Researchers from NASA are in Costa Rica flying to the tops of thunderstorms. They are trying to figure out how air from the troposphere (where all the weather happens) moves to the stratophere. We’ll talk with two of the scientists making those flights for the next few weeks;

From The Weather Center:

  • WeatherBrains 101: Just how does weather data get from a balloon, to the ground, to a big computer in Washington, to your forecast? Well, it all starts with Professor Peters and WeatherBrains 101.
  • TWIWHThis Week In Weather History: Today, we don’t think much about flying into a hurricane. Not so in 1943. Bill Murray takes us on a neat journey back to the first hurricane flight on This Week In Weather History.
