Community Playdate: Tornados & Supercells

Date: 
Friday, October 3, 2014
Location & Time: 

Moss Arts Center - Sandbox (8:30-9:30am)

Join us as we hear from Bill Carstensen (Professor and Head for the Department of Geography), Peter Sforza (CGIT), and Dave Carroll (Geography) about their research collaboration with ICAT titled "A unique platform for three-dimensional meteorological immersion and exploration." We anticipate that 3D immersion within dynamic radar fields will challenge classroom concepts in thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, cloud physics, and synoptic meteorology to the benefit of current students and meteorological practitioners.

"Community Playdates" are open discussions of topics and ideas from ICAT, Virginia Tech, and the community. We welcome any interested students, faculty, and community members to join these discussions, and enjoy coffee/pastries from the Next Door Bake Shop!
