Tornado Quest Top Science Links For March 19 – 26, 2022

Greetings to everyone! Happy Spring Equinox to everyone north of the equator and Happy Autumnal Equinox to the folks down south. I hope this weeks post finds all of you healthy and doing well. We’ll continue sharing severe weather preparedness information this week with a infographic on taking shelter during a tornado warning. There are many other interesting topics to cover this week including a must-read on storm chasing, so let’s get started.

  • Renewables and sustainability isn’t limited to sources of energy. How and what we use to construct structures is just as important to the big picture.
  • An ominous sign of what is to come. An ice shelf the size of the city of Rome has collapsed in Antarctica. This is, literally, the tip of the iceberg.
  • Speaking of Antarctica, hot poles, whether they be the North Pole or South Pole, are never good. Simultaneous melting at both is never good and nothing short of stunning.
  • As our climate changes, some people across the USA are packing up and moving cross country to remove their families and belongings out of harms way of changes that are only going to worsen with time.
  • This is an excellent essay by the inimitable research meteorologist Chuck Doswell that is as relevant (or even MORE so today) as when it was written about twenty years ago. “Storm Chasing with Safety, Courtesy, and Responsibility.”
  • Here’s an excellent read on changes in USA tornado occurrence patterns and their ramifications for people in the storm’s path.

SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY

This is an excellent and concise overview. Where you take shelter is often just as important as taking shelter in the first place. The bad and worst options should be avoided at all costs since a high percentage of deaths and injuries from a tornado occur in these locations.

Please keep in mind that ONLY your local National Weather Service office, NOAA Weather Radio, or reliable broadcast media are the BEST sources of important, timely, and potentially life-saving, information on winter storm watches, warnings, and other related weather advisories! None of the links on this website should be used for life-&-death decisions or the protection of property!
