Research: Multi-disciplinary investigation of concurrent tornadoes and flash floods in the Southeastern US

Our research group is participating in the VORTEX-SE field campaign, with specific objectives to investigate the detailed meteorological conditions in TORFF events in the southeastern US, including how they evolve in time, and how they differ from cases where only the individual hazards occur; and to investigate the NWS warning process during multi-hazard events, and document the unique challenges in these events.

This builds upon work in our group to better understand and predict concurrent, collocated tornado and flash flood ("TORFF") hazards, as discussed in Nielsen et al. (2015).
