Severe Weather In Field Training (SWIFT)

The mission of the US Naval Academy Oceanography Department's Severe Weather In-Field Training (SWIFT) is to engage midshipmen in forecasting, observing, and verifying severe convective storms.  Every May, Midshipmen and Faculty on the SWIFT team spend several weeks in the mid-west forecasting and chasing severe weather.  For more information about SWIFT, or to keep track of their activities, please follow SWIFT on Facebook!
