The Lake-Effect Electrification (LEE) project focused on weather patterns over Lake Ontario and
to the east, toward the Tug Hill region. The LEE project sought to document the
total lightening and electrical structure of lake effect storms, as well as their interactions with
Dr. Steiger and his team of 22 undergraduate students’ fieldwork consisted of storm-chasing and balloon-retrieving all over Tug Hill (September 2022 to March 2023) in order to collect data.
Join Dr. Steiger and some of his undergraduate students in presenting some of their initial findings and sharing their experiences conducting cutting-edge technological research in our region.
