Quotes

"An advisory role really can be whatever the customer wants it to be, depending on what the needs are" explained John Calvert, a mission manager in the program's Flight Projects Office
"Our results... indicate that this (Iquique) was not the earthquake that had been anticipated" wrote the authors of the first study led by Gavin Hayes of the United States Geological Survey
..."The old one was a good radar," Heymsfield said, "but the big difference in the new one is we're using a solid-state transmitter."
"Long term, our goal is to be able to predict how much precipitation we can expect to form when certain aerosols such as dust are coming toward us" says Prather. "That's a lofty goal but we're making headway."
