graduate students, and attended by a diverse group of faculty, students
D. Molenar is involved in efforts to develop interactive satellite data
training and analysis software with the University of Wisconsin Space Science
and Engineering Center and UNIDATA. A new version of the software
is to be available in March, 1998, to be used in conjunction with RAMSDIS
OnLine to conduct VISIT training sessions.

winds associated with ETCs.
Interactions with Roger Pielke, Sr, Joe Eastman, Tom Chase (CSU) and Tim
Kittel (NCAR) has resulted in the submission of a manuscript entitled
