AMS on the Air, the new podcast of the American Meteorological Society, brings you cool stories, news, and research in the weather, water, and climate community, focusing on conversations with the people who make it all happen.
Episode 3, 20 April 2018
When we talk about weather, we talk technology. Same with transportation. We discuss this ever evolving intersection of technology, transportation, and weather communication with Bill Hooke, AMS Associate Executive Director, and Paul Pisano, the Federal Highway Administration’s Team Leader for Road Weather and Work Zone Management.
Jeff Rosenfeld is the Editor-in-Chief of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. Before joining the AMS staff, he was a freelance science writer and the managing editor of Weatherwise.
