Abstract

Greate r Milwauke e to the plane's extremities are three "pads" used for in- Over 75 people attended the fourth meeting of the strumentation, such as temperature sensors, water va- season. The guest speaker, Chris Sisko, spoke about por measurements, wind direction, and barometric the study of hurricanes "up close." Sisko is from the pressure. Sisko said that these pads are located under Cooperative Institute of Meteorological Satellite Stud- the plane's two wings and just under the cockpit. The ies (CIMSS), which is part of the Space Science and nose of the plane is where a camera is mounted for Engineering Center located at the University of Wis- video information, and another area called the "Q- consin—Madison. bay," also known as the "equipment bay," is where an- Sisko began his presentation by describing what other camera is placed. CIMSS does. This institute primarily develops new Sisko explained that typical reconnaissance mis- instruments for satellites in order to increase computer sions last an average of nine hours but can be more if models' forecast accuracy, especially when tropical reconnaissance has to travel farther to reach a tropical cyclones may make landfall. Computer models do not cyclone; two to three hours
