Perhaps the most remarkable observational finding during the last 10 years is that the differences between tornadic and nontornadic supercells may be subtle, if even distinguishable, even in dual-Doppler radar analyses of the wind fields just prior to tornadogenesis.”
How vorticity is dependent on scale ?
Does it follow the power law ?
Or does it scaling with scale according to e1-D,
where e is the scale, D is a constant (fractal
