A scientist and a supercomputer re-create a tornado
Madison WI (SPX) Mar 15, 2017
With tornado season fast approaching or already underway in vulnerable states throughout the U.S., new supercomputer simulations are giving meteorologists unprecedented insight into the structure of monstrous thunderstorms and tornadoes. One such recent simulation recreates a tornado-producing supercell thunderstorm that left a path of destruction over the Central Great Plains in 2011. The person behind that simulation is Leigh Orf, a scientist with the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Sat ... read more
