Melissa Wygant Represents Gustavus at Hazards Conference

Posted on July 16th, 2012 by

Melissa Wygant, a recent geography graduate, presented her research at the Natural Hazards Conference in Boulder, Colorado. She presented a poster entitled, “Spatial Distribution of Tornadoes within Tornado Alley” which was a class project for GEG-240: Introduction to Geographic Information Systems. Her analysis showed a northward shift in the density of tornadoes and more frequent intense tornadoes over the period of study (1980-2009). Melissa will start graduate school in geography at the University of North Dakota in the fall.
