Scott Steiger

Associate Professor, Meteorology
Director LESPaRC

366 Shineman

Office hours

MWF  3-4 pm,  and by appointment

My professional interests are in anything weather, but expecially in teaching about snow and thunderstorms. I get to experience both as I live in Oswego (near the snowiest place east of the Rockies - the Tug Hill) and storm chase with students in the spring in the Great Plains of the United States!
