WeatherBrains 549: Do We Look Like Dorks Wearing It

wo4w@me.com (The Weather Company)Author: The Weather Company
Tue, Jul 26, 2016


Our guest WeatherBrain for this episode is Trevor White. Trevor started at Virginia Tech as a Business Information Technology major, expecting to graduate in four years and go into the corporate world. He joined the student newspaper in 2011 as a photographer. He’d always loved photographing lightning, and one of his photographer friends pointed out to him in May, 2012, that the “Hokie Storm Chasers” had left for the central US. He resolved to try to embed and shoot a piece on them and met with Dave Carroll in 2012. He talked his way into the first trip of the 2013 storm chase. He absolutely fell in love with severe weather and chasing. Searching for things to do with his programming background in the weather enterprise, he settled on big data type applications. Beginning in 2014, he returned west with Dave as a trip leader. After a brief and disastrous career as a PhD student in BIT, he transferred to Geography and joined the Cube project, developing analysis software. He wrote the dual-Doppler analysis software that has formed the basis of more recent visualizations. He has just taken a job at Center for Severe Weather Research with Josh Wurman and company. He plans on finishing his degree from Boulder.

Tonight’s Guest WeatherBrain is an atmospheric scientist with deep roots in severe convective storms, synoptic meteorology, applied climatology, GIS techniques, operational meteorology, and hazards. He is an Associate Professor of Meteorology at the College of DuPage. Victor Gensini, welcome to WeatherBrains!  Dr. Gensini has a relatively diverse background, but he considers himself first and foremost an atmospheric scientist. His research interests are primarily rooted in: severe convective storms, synoptic meteorology, applied climatology, GIS techniques, operational meteorology, and hazards. He is currently researching the relationship between historical observed convective variables and those produced by reanalyses datasets. Of interest is the relative utility of using reanalysis to approximate atmospheric environments conducive to severe convective storms. Additionally, he is researching aspects surrounding high-resolution dynamical downscaling of global climate model data using the WRF model for purposes of resolving convection under future SRES emissions scenarios. And if that doesn't fill your plate, he is investigating linkages between various climate teleconnections and severe weather activity across the US.

Our Guest WeatherBrain for this episode is Jason Bowman. For over 30 years, he has been studying and forecasting the weather. Over the past 10 years, he's found that social media has provided atmospheric scientists and broadcast meteorologists with the ability to follow our passion, as well as share our knowledge to keep people safe and also entertained.

Jason forecasted at WNYT, the NBC affiliate in Albany NY. After graduation in May, 1996, Jason shifted his focus to the advertising industry, working for organizations such as National Geographic and MTV. While fine tuning his business management skills, Jason would continue to forecast on the Facebook page he created prior to Hurricane Sandy in 2012. With rapid growth of the Facebook forecast page, Jason co-created My Weather Concierge®, a new and unique mobile weather app, powered by a group of tremendously talented forecasters.
