Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In July 2012 the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) released an infographic detailing the associations between extreme weather in the US and the evidence of climate change. In the report, the graph explained that strong evidence of climate change was seen in droughts, coastal flooding and heat waves, while limited evidence was seen for tornadoes and hurricanes. However, on the heels of devastating events, such as last fall´s...

Part 3 of redOrbit´s exclusive 6-part series Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In the last installment of this series, we took a close-up look at the technology behind Earth Networks Total Lightning Network (ENTLN). In part 3, we will look at the rate of false alarms put out by the ENTLN and compare those to the warning system utilized by the National Weather Service (NWS). We will also look at an anecdotal situation where Robert Marshall, CEO of Earth...

Tornado Forecasting
2012-03-28 08:00:09

RedOrbit.com Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Every year many people lose their lives to tornadoes. So why is there not a better plan in place for warning the public about these tornadoes and when they are going to occur? In earlier times there was not much in place for warnings. Now with the advancement of technology, tornado forecasting has gotten a lot better and we are able to provide warnings that give people enough time to take shelter. So why are so many people still dying from...

Satellite Shows Movement Of Tornadic Weather System

[ Watch the Video ] A satellite animation of NOAA's GOES-13 satellite imagery showed the movement of the front that triggered severe storms and tornadoes in several states on February 29, 2012. On March 1, NASA released a GOES satellite animation of that weather system that triggered at least 20 tornadoes. NOAA's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite, GOES-13, captures visible and infrared images of weather over the eastern U.S. every 15 minutes. NOAA operates the GOES...

Focus on deadly April 27, 2011, outbreak in Alabama and surrounding states It was one of the deadliest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history. Now scientists are organizing a research program to better understand the tornadoes that blew through Alabama and other southeastern states on April 27, 2011. Scientists at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) are analyzing radar data from that day, then merging the information with detailed storm surveys and other data. They hope to learn more...

Satellites have been busy this week covering severe weather across the U.S. Today, the GOES-13 satellite and NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of the huge stretch of clouds associated with a huge and soggy cold front as it continues its slow march eastward. Earlier this week, NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite captured images of severe weather that generated tornadoes over Louisiana. Today the eastern third of the U.S. is being buffered by a large storm that stretches...
