Dr. Scott M. Steiger
Associate Professor, Department of Earth Sciences, State University of New York at Oswego.

Professor Steiger has studied thunderstorms observationally for over a decade. He was co-coordinator of the Texas A&M Mobile Severe Storms Data Acquisition group while a graduate student at Texas A&M University. Scott chased storms for research and recreational purposes every season while attending Texas A&M and has also worked for both a private storm chasing company and a college storm chasing program. He has been an active member of the American Meteorological Society and American Geophysical Union for many years. Dr. Steiger has taught courses on meso-meteorology, which includes the study of thunderstorms and the severe weather they can produce, both at Texas A&M and SUNY Oswego. His research interests include short-term forecasting of severe local storms using radar and lightning data. He also is an avid weather photographer (lightning, tornadoes). He looks forward to sharing his in-depth knowledge and experience with students in the best way he knows possible - by going outside!
