Nonlinear Severe Storm Events
Pikes Peak Area Tornado
Most tornados are associated with a set of well understood parameters within well organized super cells and meso cyclones. However, nature has a way of creating tornados under a variety of nontraditional conditions which leaves emergency planners and meterologists stumped from time to time.
This site is dedicated to promoting both traditional knowledge about tornado genesis, but also about nonlinear severe storm events that can initiate tornadic conditions under a variety of circumstances.
Inspiration for this site was discovery of the Draupner Wave, which gave rise to a new mathimatical approach for nonlinear severe wave propigation in ocean environments, and projecting the possibility a sudden non-linear severe storm could occur within an atmospheric environment, as well, and developing suddenly by taking energy from other storm systems.
The most destructive rogue systems have potential to do severe damage, as they can occur under somewhat unpredictable conditions. For example, the May 22, 2008 EF-3 Windsor Tornado occurred in a radar blind spot, or the August 18, 2009, EF-1 Town of Lake George mountain tornado that occurred in mid August at elevations above 8,000ft.
This site is also dedicated to promotion of emergency response planning and developing early warning systems and policy to deal with sudden severe storms that occur in nontraditional conditions and environments.
The first and last rule, when visiting this site, or skiing or riding double black diamond extreme chutes, 'in bounds' or otherwise, is you do so at your own risk. ;) No discussion on this site implies that any 'in or out of bounds' EX areas are safe. Just like avalanche control is an in exact science, so is skiing extreme terrain for a variety of reasons. With that said, shread up the terrain!!
