A time display of weather information for a single observing site
3.5 (Using Figure 15.40b)
Some of the most violent tornadoes contain smaller whirls that orbit around the center of the parent tornado, guided by the parent’s counterclockwise spin - Multi-Vortex Tornadoes.
Suction Vortices – smaller, whirling offspring within a larger tornado
Cycloid – looping damage path caused by a suction vortex
Photogrammetry – frame-by-frame analyses of flying debris in a tornado yield the distances objects move over a specific period of time
Wind speeds can be calculated from these distances and time
Velocity = 23 mph
