Severe Weather In Field Training (SWIFT)

The mission of the US Naval Academy Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences 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 Great Plains forecasting and chasing severe weather.  For more information about SWIFT, or to keep track of their activities, please follow SWIFT on Facebook!
