About This Project

Tornadoes are violent rotating winds that kill people and destroy property. My recent work shows that tornado energy can be estimated from the amount of damage and the size of the damage path. Using estimated tornado energy along with population, this study will attempt to better understand how tornado casualties may change as the earth continues to warm. This allows for more insight into the changing behavior of tornadoes.
