Another reminder of today's seminar at 3:30 PM by Dr. Heymsfield. Look forward to seeing you at LOV 353.

Title: A Comprehensive Observational Study of Graupel and Hail Properties and Hailfall


This talk will provide an overview of where various particle types are most prevalent geographically. The speaker will then discuss the basic physical properties of graupel and hail, including their mass and size distributions---the speaker will elaborate on their terminal velocities and kinetic energies toward the end of the seminar. The speaker will discuss field programs that have been mounted to characterize hail properties, from in-situ aircraft measurements and at the ground. This will lead into a discussion of how hail forms and attempts in the past to reduce hailfall. How damage from hail has been tested in the laboratory and at the ground will be discussed. The speaker concludes by discussing, in detail because it is an active research topic of his, hail terminal velocities and their kinetic energy.
