OU Meteorologists featured in Norman Transcript
Dr. Steven Cavallo and a number of other scientists were recently awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to study tropopause polar vortices. This project was featured lately in an article in the Norman Transcript: http://www.normantranscript.com/news/university_of_oklahoma/ou-meteorologists-look-north-for-better-predictions/article_a8d3cf29-77f2-5efa-9139-963300cc1c6c.html
The team plans to use aircraft to learn about the effect Arctic cyclones have on sea ice, and will ultimately include a field campaign sometime around 2020. Their research may allow for increased mid-latitude weather prediction in the future, as well.
For further questions, please contact Dr. Steven Cavallo via his faculty webpage.
