How do we determine the strength of a tornado? The damage left behind is surveyed and rated using the Enhanced Fujita Scale. What if a tornado forms and there is no or limited damage? Could Mobile Doppler Radar be used to help determine a tornado’s wind speed? On Episode 23 of Tornado Talk, we gain insight from four experts on balancing mobile radar with damage surveys. All are meteorologists and have performed storm surveys. Two of our experts worked with Ted Fujita and were on the development team that developed the Enhanced Fujita Scale. Episode 23, What To Do With The Wind, is ON!!
In this area each week, we will post a whirlwind of information for you! It will include links mentioned in the podcast episode, ways to connect with some of our guests, articles to read about the show topic, and whatever else we want to throw your way!
