Welcome to the Upslope Chaos blog. I am an 18 year old studying Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Kansas. However, I am planning on attending the University of Oklahoma starting fall 2012. Obviously, my passion in this world is derived from the wonders of supercells and their related tornadoes along with my unquenchable yearning for understanding of the meteorological processes which lead to both. My future aspirations include being an in-field researcher and a potential professor at a renowned university. I'm doing everything in my power to accomplish this from receiving a 4.0 my first semester of college to involving myself in various meteorology based programs.
The purpose of this blog is to not only enhance my understanding of severe weather from forecasts, observations, and reflections, but to also help other youthful and elderly meteorologists alike achieve the understanding that they too desire. -Ben Toms
