In this addition to the critically-acclaimed Scientist in the Field series, scientist Robin Tanamachi and her team are trying to save countless lives across America’s heartland, chasing one tornado at a time.

Robin Tanamachi has been captivated by tornadoes and extreme weather her entire life. When she realized people researched weather for a job, she was hooked. She now studies tornadogenesis, or how tornadoes form, and what causes them to get weaker versus strengthen. For her, driving around in a Doppler radar truck aiming towards storms is a normal day in the office. The data she collects is then modeled and studied on computers—with math, physics, and computer science working hand inhand with meteorology. At the end of the day, knowing exactly how, when, and where these violent storms happen can give more warning time for everyone involved.

Mary Kay Carson and Tom Uhlman are married and live in a house surrounded by deer, hawks, woodchucks, and other creatures in Ohio. Mary Kay's other Scientist in the Field books includePark Scientists,The Bat Scientist, andMission to Pluto.

Tom Uhlman has been a freelance photographer for 25 years. Tom's photographs are also inPark Scientists andThe Bat Scientists.
