Meteorology students in a senior seminar at SUNY Oneonta discuss their research before climbing to the roof of Science I to practice launching a weather balloon and to learn how to use a theodolite, a manual surveying tool used until the 1950s to track a pilot balloon. Today meteorologists use a radiosonde to track balloons electronically.
