Big Data Weather: Tracking Tornadoes Goes High Tech

FORA.tv (May 9, 2013) — Kelvin Droegemeier's research involves the dynamics and predictability of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. He helped pioneer the science of storm-scale numerical weather forecasting, leading the early development of the world's first atmospheric computer model capable of assimilating Doppler radar and other data for explicitly predicting high-impact local weather such as individual thunderstorms. High performance computing has played a key role in Droegemeier's career as an educator and scientist, and during the past decade he helped establish two supercomputing centers at the University of Oklahoma and served on NSF's Blue Ribbon Panel on Cyberinfrastructure.
