    The Disappearance of Melrak

    Welcome back ❤
  3. After fearing to sleep Wednesday (was using my rescue inhaler often, fear of being unable to breathe), it's nice to be able to wake up today and be able to breathe out of my nostrils and not cough up my lungs. It's amazing how much you cherish oxygen when you've spent the last few days struggling to get enough of it. P.S., my ribs hurt like a bitch.

      Holy crap what did you contract?

      I wish I knew, I couldn't get in to see a doctor because no one had openings for me (my family doctor is 2h away).. and school health center refused to take my insurance so I'd have to pay for all my tests out of pocket. So I decided I would just stay home and die.

    Community Meeting on Feb 17th @ 8 PM EST/ 7 PM CST

    I'll definitely be there - as long as I don't catch the plague that's going around campus or have to deal with senior class hmwk assignments (wew). Make sure you bring up concerns/questions/comments to this thread ya'll. Community meetings of the past have offered many fruitful discussions and have brought about insight on possible concerns within the community that people of higher up ranks don't usually get to see or notice. Being as this is on the 17th, perhaps it will be the same day as the Admin meeting - so these comments could even be brought up there and discussed on the same day. Do eeeeeeeeeet.

    Water resource management question set 3

    I also agree with the lowering of the anticipated year we run out of fresh water. From the atmospheric science side of things, I'm holding very little hope for our future - especially with the recent data skewing towards an extremely soon time frame in regards to detrimental environmental impacts caused by the big nasty thing no one wants to discuss. *shrug* I won't get into my climate science discussion as I don't want to upset anyone xD. Casual two cents.

    idea for a new squad

    There aren't usually topics that are applicable to me or need me as of late - so no forums for me lol

    Plans for New Season?

    Helloooo I was wondering if there were any plans or such for the new season that is coming out? I see that the overall forums and Discord activity of the division has diminished... trying to get back into the guild in game. Is the division still active?

    Water resource management

    Apologies for the late reply - was getting all sorted out for first day of classes! I will start by saying that a lot of what @Badboi(OD) has said pretty much echoes what I would input, especially the discussions of very basic weather patterns and how that affects multiple things - hydrology and water management being one of them. Seasonal variability in precipitation and temperature has a very obvious effect on the amount of water that is in a watershed. Badboi has elaborated really well on each of these topics- I have nothing amazing to further add. I would also like to continue to point out that seasonal variability and unexpected changes to predicted wet/dry seasons have a pretty detrimental impact on both water sustainability and agriculture. An example from the drier spectrum would be California as of late - being in a drought stage for the last few years has had major impacts ranging from crop loss to uncontrollable wildfires damaging the land (that opens a whole other can of worms to discuss trouble in terms of agriculture). California relies heavily on snow pack replenishment as a way to sustain the watersheds and keep the heavily water reliant state on its feet - that hasn't been happening for a good bit of time now. An example from the extremely wet side would be NC, where we have had flooding rains through much of the late summer/fall seasons, plus a hurricane - ultimately damaging landscape, flooding crops, and killing as little as hundreds to as many as millions of various different animals that are detrimental to the economy here. I have nothing further to add to question two (damnit badboi). For question three, my mind would automatically look at the Great Lakes as the main source of water for much of Michigan's water. I was actually unaware of the extensive groundwater use for agriculture within my home state, so this is rather intriguing. In terms of protecting such valuable resources, I think there are good starts in terms of regulating what humans put into water, but there could be better enforcings and a more in depth look at what is deemed as "safe" for water and how we handle toxics. For this, I could elaborate further on from my Hydro class, but yah girl needs more time to investigate her resources. A lot of my "go-to" investigation sites for sources are.. uh.. blocked currently. I am unsure if you have a timeline for these questions - but I'll happily edit as I go about my research business. This is a fun topic :3

    Water resource management

    Ironically, I just finished a hydrology/hydrogeology course last semester.. On top of my met courses. And am from MI so may be biased. I will provide my thoughts once I finish driving back to campus. @Badboi(OD), just want to mention how hype I was to be considered a good source.. Small things (thank you)

      No matter where you go you'll still have OD. At least that part should always feel normal and familiar.

    Weather Nerd Kait's Balloon Launch Videos

    As I posted in a status over the weekend, the Carolinas had a really fun snow event this past weekend. We typically don't see this much snow this early in the season (most of our snow comes in late January/early February), so of course the weather nerds were outside in it. But we were also outside for other reasons! I am part of a research team with my adviser of my meteorology department. During snowfall events with totals that reach a certain threshold.. or during Northwest snowfall events.. we launch weather balloons! We also make this data available to neighboring National Weather Service offices, which they use to tune their forecasts - as they are now getting live data from the storm. This is very useful data and this dataset is incredibly rare. We had some issues with our balloons: ice accumulation ended up bringing most of our balloons back down to surface (got up to about 700mb, then the ice accumulated and it started going back down to the starting pressure... woops). It was a very odd scenario, so out of 5 or 6 balloons launched, we only had viable upper-atmosphere data for 2 launches. Very sad. Regardless, launching the balloon is super fun.. being in the snow is super fun.. and getting followed by Alex Wilson from the Weather Channel was a highlight. Seeing/hearing thundersnow in Asheville was even better (and I rubbed it in Cantore's face as he was in Boone, hahahahah!). If you have any questions, pleaaaaaase ask. I'd love to answer them. If anyone knows how to download Twitter live videos.. please share knowledge. I have livestreams on there as well.. they just want to be argumentative. Some of them are a little loud, so be wary ~ They are within the vimeo links below: First Balloon Launch (that I got to see): Snow! :
