Description



The understanding of severe storms begins with observations of their behavior. Numerical models of thunderstorms can be used to compliment this understanding. These models consist of mathematical equations which can be solved on a supercomputer. Wind, temperature, pressure and other values are calculated every few seconds for several hundred thousand locations in the area of the storm's development. The numerical storm grows in wind and temperature conditions observed prior to an actual severe thunderstorm.
