Researchers develop radar simulator to characterize scattering of debris in tornadoes
Description: Researchers have developed the first numerical polarimetric radar simulator to study and characterize the scattering of debris particles in tornadoes. The results of their study are important for operational weather forecasters and emergency managers. An improved understanding of what weather radars tell us about tornado debris can help provide more accurate tornado warnings and quickly direct emergency personnel to affected areas.
