Sam Childs awarded 2nd place for AMS symposium presentation

Ph.D. candidate Sam Childs, advised by Associate Professor Russ Schumacher, received second place for his presentation at the AMS Societal Applications Symposium, held during the annual meeting in Boston in January. Childs’ presentation, “An agricultural perspective on severe hail,” conveyed results from his interviews of eastern Colorado farmers and ranchers. The study measured their perceptions of vulnerability and exposure to hailstorms and the perceived efficacy of warning messages for severe hail.
