First Major Deployment Day Photos (Posted by David Stark)

On May 13, 2009 the NCSU mobile sounding team had our first major deployment day with pre-strom environment soundings as well as storm-scale deployments once a target storm was identified. Here are a few photos taken from one of the teams during the course of the day.
