Episode 49: Do People Think Radar Is Useful? (w/ Michelle Saunders)
Doppler radar technology is easily accessible, and we often see if on our local news, on our weather apps, and on websites. But do people know how to properly use radars to access weather conditions? Do people find radars to be useful for their day-to-day activities? We talk with Michelle Saunders, a PhD candidate at the University of South Florida, who's looking into these questions and ideas. Plus, we talk to one person who's never really used a radar before (my roomie) and sit down for a one-on-one about her perceptions, thoughts, and interpretation of radar on her smartphone app.
That and more on this week's episode!
