Description

We cannot prevent tornadoes, but we can try to minimize their impact on humans. This important book examines what scientists know about tornadoes, how we can predict them, and how we learn from each event. By studying the destruction they cause, scientists and engineers continue to come up with new and improved technologies to predict severe weather and better protect cities, buildings, and people. Case studies and brief bios of key scientists and organizations highlight the information.
