Better forecasts in the future?
LeMone studies the interaction between Earth's surface and the boundary layer--the lowest few thousand feet of the atmosphere. To collect data, LeMone and her colleagues use weather balloons, radar, and even low-flying planes equipped with computers and atmospheric sensors.
Over the next few years, LeMone hopes to translate her data into mathematical equations that can help meteorologists improve their forecasts.
