Student photos from summer of 2019 TORUS chase. Adam Houston, Professor of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, led the TORUS project — the most ambitious drone-based investigation of severe storms and tornadoes ever conducted — chased supercells for more than 9,000 miles across five states this summer. The project, led by Nebraska's Adam Houston, features more than 50 scientists and students from four universities. The 2019 team included 13 Huskers — 10 undergraduates and three graduate students. The $2.5 million study is funded through a $2.4 million, three-year grant from the National Science Foundation with additional support provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
