Dr. Cameron Homeyer is one of the leading scientists for the NASA research project, The Dynamics and Chemistry of the Summer Stratosphere (DCOTSS). Recently, Science Magazine posted an article featuring this research:
The team will work together to analyze potential threats to earth’s ozone layer, and one important part of the research is considering that the source of some stratospheric moisture might be particularly powerful thunderstorms over the continental United States. Dr. Homeyer designed a technique by which others were able to detect storms of this type using 3D radar data from the National Weather Service. Ultimately, the DCOTSS project will help gather much-needed meteorological and chemical data about the stratosphere and help scientists to have a better understanding of further hazards possible in our atmosphere.
