The Severe Weather Research Group at
Purdue University conducts basic and applied research on thunderstorms
and associated weather hazards. Here are some examples of our active
- Upscaling effects of thunderstorms on the larger-scale environment;
- The trends and spatial climatology of tornadoes;
- Short-term predictability, and long-lead predictions, of severe convective weather;
- Assessment of inland risk associated with tropical cyclones
Our research tools include observations, computer simulation models, and basic theory.
Currently, the National Science Foundation provides much of our funding.
