The Tornado Scientist

Robin Tanamachi has been captivated by tornadoes and extreme weather her entire life. When she realized people researched weather for a job, she was hooked. She now studies tornadogenesis, or how tornadoes form, and what causes them to get weaker versus strengthen. For her, driving around in a Doppler radar truck aiming towards storms is a normal day in the office.

The data she collects is then modeled and studied on computers — with math, physics, and computer science working hand in hand with meteorology. At the end of the day, knowing exactly how, when, and where these violent storms happen can give more warning time for everyone involved. This addition to the critically-acclaimed Scientists in the Field series celebrates a scientist and her team who are trying to save countless lives across America's heartland, chasing one tornado at a time.
