"New Insights Into Tornado Debris"

From "The Wizard of Oz" (Dorothy) to "Twister" (cows), the transport of objects by tornado winds has captivated the public. In this talk I'll discuss the history of scientific research into this phenomenon and its evolution from anecdotal accounts to "dual-pol" radar observations. I'll focus on the work of University of Georgia students to fuse social media and atmospheric science to create an unprecedented dataset of tornado debris from the April 2011 tornado super outbreak in the Southeast U.S. By the end of the talk, you'll know more about the how-big, how-high, how-far of tornado debris, and also why this topic matters to meteorologists and emergency managers alike.
