Description:

Students are challenged to apply their knowledge of environments conducive to supercell development to create the ideal environment for a suprcell thunderstorm. The vertical profiles of temperature, moisture, and winds produced by the students is used to initialize an idealized simulation. Students then move from predicting the ideal environment to being able to quantify how to identify the ideal environment. Students create their own severe weather index, and use their newly created indices to test each others environment. After students have a prediction for each others environment, they present their hypothesis and then get to view in 3-d the results of the idealized simulations.
