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 projects:
  • 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.
