Former research scientist at the Geophysical Laboratory, Marc Fries, was mentioned in the November 2013 edition of Popular Mechanics.  The article Why is this Rock Worth $400,000, talks about a hunter who is "studying Doppler radar images of a meteorite's descent assembled by Marc Fries of NASA. Using National Weather Service data, Fries plots the mass and velocity of the falling debris on the map. "Marc tracks meteorites as they fall, then I hit the field to recover fragments," Ward [the hunter] says."  Find the full article here.
