We are from the School of Meteorology and we invite you to participate in our research project entitled Tornado Warning Communication and Response. This research is being conducted at The University of Oklahoma. You were selected as a possible participant because you received the link to the online survey.
What is the purpose of this research? The purpose of this research is to study how different individuals respond to severe weather communication.
What will I be asked to do? If you agree to be in this research, you will answer 10 questions regarding severe weather communication, each with multiple parts. The survey will be completed online only.
How long will this take? Your participation will take about 15 minutes. The questions vary in length and time.
What are the risks and/or benefits if I participate? There are no risks and no benefits from being in this research.
Will I be compensated for participating? You will not be reimbursed for your time and participation in this research.
Who will see my information? In research reports, there will be no information that will make it possible to identify you. Research records will be stored securely and only approved researchers and the OU Institution Review Board will have access to the records.
You can also contact the University of Oklahoma Norman Campus Institutional Review Board (OU-NC IRB) at 405-325-8110 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about your rights as a research participant, concerns, or complaints about the research and wish to talk to someone other than the researcher(s) or if you cannot reach the researcher(s).
Ditto - our big training session is 2/28. Those of us who run the amateur radio nets had our meeting with the warning coordination meteorologist last week to understand some new warning terms.
Interesting survey - I'm watching a story on local TV right now reporting from the Norman office about using UAVs to fly in the lower atmosphere to gather data on developing severe storms.
Bump for later
Yeah, NWS spotter and amateur chaser.
How the hell do I answer I’m going to take protective action for a warning in my county when I’m a thousand yards away from it, monitoring its direction visually and by radar? :)
