For developing and supporting RAP's Snowfall Test Site at Marshall. Nearly single-handedly, Jeff set up a facility for testing snow gauges and evaluating the performance of deicing fluids for RAP's FAA-sponsored Ground Deicing and Snowfall Evaluation Program. Over the past three years Jeff has created a state-of-the-art test site with a wide variety of weather and snowfall sensors. He also has modified a trailer to serve as an operations center with real-time radar displays and output from the various sensors. The Marshall site has become an important component of RAP's winter research program and has attracted national and international attention.
