DISCUSSION: Attached above is a neat follow-up article to the earlier discussion (courtesy of Meteorologist Anthony Lupo from the University of Missouri) on research pertaining to atmospheric blocking events. This is a very interesting article which will give you powerful insights into the statistics surrounding global blocking events and characteristics thereof. Be sure to open the document attached above to learn more about the year of 2016 from the perspective of global atmospheric blocking events.

Insight into the Research On a Snowfall Measurement Product! (credit: Meteorologist Sheldon Kusselson)
DISCUSSION: In light of the very recently concluded winter storm which impacted many parts of the north-central United States, here is a neat piece of research work which conducted by Meteorologist Sheldon Kusselson and others which collaborated with him. Note that this product is produced by microwave sensors onboard polar orbiting satellites that sense snow in the cloud at an average resolution of 25kms and then converts to a snow-water equivalent. Many meteorologists benefit from this particular product on a relatively consistent basis during forecasts concerning winter storms.

DISCUSSION: Ever wonder Hurricane Sandy (October 2012) and many other events around the world unfolded in the way in which they did? Many of these events occurred in the vicinity of middle-to-upper atmospheric phenomena known as atmospheric blocking events. There is a lot of debate about what they are and Dr. Anthony Lupo (Professor at the University of Missouri) helps to break it all down in the article attached below!
