LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Members of the University of Wyoming’s Department of Atmospheric Science will participate in a study to better understand why so much lake-effect snow falls on the shores of Lake Ontario in northern New York state.

Bart Geerts, a UW professor of atmospheric science, is one of the lead investigators in the project that will be conducted this coming December and January.

Geerts says these are some similarities of snowfall over an open lake and snowfall over the mountains of Wyoming.

The project is funded by the National Science Foundation and is a collaborative effort among nine universities and one nonprofit organization.

UW’s research aircraft and mobile radars will be used to help study the dynamics of lake-effect snowstorms in detail.
