With so many deadly tornadoes in the news lately, I thought I’d post a few links:
–Here’s a link to the How Stuff Works tornado page.
–The Tornado Project Online. (Affiliated with How Stuff Works, lots of top-ten lists etc…)
-How to make a tornado box for a science fair.
-Is it a vortex of rising, warm and moist air or cool air dropping downward? Good models here. A horizontal column of rotating air that gets lifted with the rising air in the formation of a storm?
-The Red Cross Tornado Preparedness Page.
-You’ve got to check out Tornadovideos.net.
A swedish guy has a small tornado drop down in front of his car (1:15 or so, cool video)A dust-devil here. If you have time and are a real weather geek, the formation of a supercell here.
