A class in meteorology with Professor of Geosciences Cynthia Domack led not only to a spring internship with a local TV meteorologist, but a summer internship in the field for Michael Hosek ’19.
After taking Geosciences 240: Meteorology in the fall, Hosek worked on an independent study on meteorology with Domack this semester. Part of his study included an internship with Chief Meteorologist Bill Kardas at WKTV (NBC affiliate) in Utica. Hosek also completed a research project (The Severe Thunderstorm Outbreak Across Upstate New York on May 29, 2013), with focus on the hail and tornadoes associated with this event.
Hosek is a physics major with minors in mathematics and geosciences and is interested in a career in atmospheric science. He has accepted an internship for this summer at the National Weather Service office in Binghamton, N.Y.
Hosek recently presented his Independent Study research and Kardas and two others from WKTV attended.
