Extreme Weather – Tornadoes

We are investigating long-range prediction methods to investigate the noise from tornados. We are interested in characterizing their source statistics and how their sound is altered by the turbulent atmosphere in different weather systems. We also take into the account of the ground terrain within the prediction method.
