Seth Rainey is a current master’s student in the Department of Geography at Kent State University. His research focus is on applied climatology with interests ranging from weather and transportation to human-environment interactions. Currently, for his thesis, Seth is investigating the spatiotemporal relationship between lake-effect snow and motor vehicle accidents in Northeast Ohio, specifically looking at the quantifiable differences in the frequency of car crashes over time and space among varying winter season weather types.
