Vortex 2 Comes to An End for 2010

The Vortex2 project has officially come to an end for the 2010 season.  Yesterday was the last "official" operations day.  

I obviously wasn't on the team, but from what I've seen since operations began back in May, this year was far more productive than last as far as "operational" severe weather was concerned.  The team deployed on numerous severe and several tornadic storms, and invaluable data sets were undoubtedly obtained.

Now the scientists go "back to the lab", study the data and hopefully make meaningful advances in our understanding of the development, organization and intensification of severe/tornadic thunderstorms.

Here is a site were you can look at the day-by-day chronicles of the experiment over the past month and a half.
