My advisor, Konrad Mauersberger, went on to become the director of atmospheric sciences at the Max Planck Institut fuer Kernphysik (MPIK) in Heidelberg, Germany. This is where I collected the data for most of my thesis. I was something of a bridge-person, as I was a student at the University of Minnesota, where Konrad was a professor at the time, but also collaborated with Dieter Krankowsky and others at MPIK. Konrad has since retired and come back to Minnesota, the better to see his kids and grandkids!
