Dr. Detwiler did post-doctoral work at SUNY Albany and the National Center for Atmospheric Research in the early 1980's before joining the General Electric Aircraft Engine Business Group in 1983 to work on solutions for defense-related problems. In 1987 he moved to the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSMT) in Rapid City where he served as facility scientist with the National Science Foundation (NSF)-sponsored armored T-28 aircraft research facility. This facility supported airborne observations in convective storms contributing to research projects supported by the NSF, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and other agencies and companies. Detwiler is particularly proud of developing capability for atmospheric electrical observations with the T-28.
During his time at SDSMT Detwiler taught a number of undergraduate and graduate courses in atmospheric physics, dynamics, and chemistry, and served as department head. Upon retirement he moved to the Grand Forks vicinity where he now has research collaborations with UND faculty and has taught several classes.
