The experimental Tornado Debris Signature algorithm uses dual-pol radar data to map areas of debris.
Scientists have re-examined the March 18, 1925 Tri-State Tornado was unusually severe, killing 695 people while it was on the ground for a record 219 miles crossing parts of Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.
Today, researchers launched the Mesoscale Predictability EXperiment (MPEX) field project to collect data on pre-storm and post-storm environments in an effort to better predict where and when thunderstorms will form. MPEX runs from May 15 – June 15, and is funded by the National Science Foundation.
