Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
My M.S. project analyzed case studies of hail-producing convective storms events before and during the RELAMPAGO field campaign in central Argentina. I evaluated these cases through the analysis of satellite and radar data and through an experimental study of the hailstones collected and studied in a sub-zero lab under the direction of Dr. Lucia Arena in the Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics at the National University of Cordoba in Cordoba, Argentina. The results from the comparison between hail-producing cases gives us the motivation to look further at these different types of environments and cases that can produce hail in this region. Ultimately, the long-term goal during my PhD is to better understand unique aspects of hail formation and challenges to hail forecasting in this region, especially given that these hail-producing systems formed in two different environments and were not well forecasted.
