The next installment of FORTCAST’s What’s Brewing in Weather and Climate series is crafted with a Fort Collins flavor. Karen Kosiba, an atmospheric scientist at the Center for Severe Weather Research in Boulder, will present “A CRAFT IPA: A Career with Radars And Field Time Incorporating Proposals and Analyses.”
How is a career in atmospheric science related to craft beer? For one, there are plenty of acronyms in both.
A strong believer in experiencing weather from the inside of a Doppler on Wheels (DOW) radar truck, Kosiba has participated in a multitude of field projects, including:
- Radar Observations of Tornadoes and Thunderstorms Experiment (ROTATE),
- Hurricanes and Landfall (HAL),
- Convectively and Orographically-induced Precipitation Study (COPS),
- the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Thunderstorms Experiment (VORTEX2),
- Long Lake-Axis-Parallel Lake-Effect Storms Project (LLAP),
- and AgI Seeding Cloud Impact Investigation (ASCII).
