AOSS Tornado Camp Students Take Part in Vortex2

VORTEX2, sponsored by NOAA and NSF, is the largest and most ambitious effort ever made to understand tornadoes. More than 100 scientists and crew in up to 40 science and support vehicles are participating in this unique, fully nomadic, field program in May/June 2009-2010. You can follow their progress at: http://www.wunderground.com/blog/Vortex2/.

The Weather Underground sponsors the Michigan team’s blog.
