First International Summit on Tornadoes and Climate Change
2014-05-25 to 2014-05-30
Chania, Crete, Greece
Using new radar technology and extensive field programs scientists have gained a considerable understanding of how tornadoes in rich moisture and high shear environments form. New insights into how the melting Arctic sea ice can shift these environments provide the background to a better understanding of tornado climate. We propose to bring together for the first time the tornado and climate communities for a 5-day summit with the goal to advance the state of knowledge of how tornado activity across the world might be affected by climate change.
