For my 7th grade science project, I watched the weather forecast on two main local TV channels and compared their 24-hour forecasts.

It was my undergraduate professors, Prof. A. A. Balogun and Prof. (that time Dr.) O. O. Jegede that got me interested in meteorology/weather/atmospheric physics.
I have a vivid memory of watching the storm that spawned the Catoosa tornado as it tracked east of town. The base of that storm was perfectly flat and dark as night.
The "event" that got me interested in weather was my Physical Oceanography oral exam in graduate school for marine biology in the mid-70s.
My dad helped me set up a weather station when I was 9 years old, kept daily records of temperature and rainfall through high school.
The Centennial Campaign
We're building the next 100 years of AMS. With your support, just imagine what we will accomplish next.
By funding initiatives like student travel grants, science education programs, cross-discipline collaboration efforts, and scholarships, your contribution will help us advance science in the next century and empower the next generation of scientists to change the world.
Last year, AMS gave out 40 scholarships and fellowships to promising students from all across the country.
