Assessing the impacts of microphysical and environmental controls on simulated supercell storms
Supercell thunderstorms are some of the most dangerous single-cell storms on the planet. These storms produce many hazards to life and property, including tornadoes, floods, damaging straightline winds, strong updrafts and downdrafts, and lightning. Although these hazards are not unique to supercells, some of them are often at their strongest when supercell-produced. Because of the destructive power of supercell hazards, supercells have been the subject of scientific research for decades. In this thesis, two of these hazards will be examined: supercell rainfall and supercell tornadoes, with the ...
