Scott Steiger talks to CNN about the unique lake-effect weather conditions at Oswego.
The Meteorology Program at SUNY Oswego has been a leader in research and forecasting of the atmosphere, principally due to its unique position next to Lake Ontario. SUNY Oswego students obtain significant experience studying weather phenomena such as lake-effect snow and waterspouts.
The Lake-Effect Storm Prediction & Research Center (LESPaRC) fulfills three goals: to create more opportunities for student research, to provide clients with helpful weather forecasting information to assist in their decison making, and to create connections between other academic institutions such as SUNY Brockport, Oneonta, and Cornell, and other forecasting programs such as the National Weather Service Offices in Buffalo and Binghamton.
The Meteorology Program teaches students how to observe and predict weather features, and the LESPaRC allows for students to take the next step by expanding and applying their knowledge through research and forecasting for our clients. It is a fundamental step in the learning process of meteorology students to forecast and study small scale phenomena such as lake-effect storms.
