My artist friend Tim Dye just sent me information about his latest project ChaserTracer. Tim is the Senior Vice President/Division Manager of Meteorological Programs and Public Outreach for Sonoma Technology and provided lots of support for Particle Falls and other projects.
Like me, Tim is a fan of storm chasing (but unlike me, I think he has actually done it himself…I’d love to hear a tornado at close range or hurricane from a plane but haven’t had the opportunity yet). Tim gives some detailed technical information on his webpage about the project, he says:
I created ChaserTracer to show a different side of storm chasing. Not the over-hyped chaser TV show version with the heavily edited micro-view of storm chasing; instead, I wanted to create an eye-in-the-sky view of how chasers chase. You can see some interesting behavior as chasers swarm, disperse, and migrate.
