Langmuir Lab, 1999, Photo
We are studying the electrical evolution of thunderstorms
by flying multiple series of instrumented balloons into the storms that
form over the Magdalena Mountains in central New Mexico. This project
is funded by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. ATM-9626542.
The photos on this page were taken by Terry Hock of the National
Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
