Dave Call, Ph.d.

I teach quantitative and qualitative classes in meteorology and geography.  My research bridges both areas by examining how society deals with hazardous winter weather.  I lead our storm chasing class and have logged more than 110,000 miles while observing nearly every facet of thunderstorms, from benign mammatus clouds to deadly tornadoes.


I am an American Meteorological Society (AMS) Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) and regularly appear on television, radio, and print media discussing current weather events and popularizing science.  I also am consulting meteorologist and work with law firms and others in need of expert weather reports and forecasts.
