An international team of researchers return to Tornado Ally for a second year of tornado research. Last year was an unusually quiet year, and the team was only able to get data on one really good storm, out of the 5 or 6 they had anticipated. The Study is called Vortex 2 and involves over 100 scientists, 50 trucks, with 10 mobile radars, 36 portable surface weather stations, weather balloons, and a 12 foot unmanned aircraft.
For six weeks the team will be on the road, with no fixed based of operations. They will be watching an area strtching from south-west Minnesota to West Texas, a stretch of over 900 miles.
This team is tasked with gathering large amounts of data that can help in better prediction, and increased warning times of future twisters. The data gather from the first tornado last year made it the most observer ever. They are hoping for much more of the same this year!
