Hosted by Steve Rutledge

Abstract

For the past 20 years, Samaras has combined his technical expertise to his passion of chasing storms to collect first-ever data and images from tornadoes and lightning. He will share the techniques he uses, some of the data he has collected and show some of the incredible imagery from logging 35,000 miles each year in Tornado Alley. He will briefly discuss what the future has in store for him.
