24th Conference on Severe Local Storms


Dual-Doppler analyses of nontornadic supercells observed with mobile ground-based Doppler radars

Mario Majcen, Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park, PA; and P. Markowski, Y. Richardson, and J. Wurman

Dual-Doppler wind syntheses derived from Doppler On Wheels (DOW) data will be presented in order to document the morphology and evolution of low-level kinematic fields within four nontornadic supercells observed during the ROTATE-2004 deployments on 12, 15, 17 and 18 June 2004, respectively. The characteristics of these nontornadic supercells will be compared with the characteristics of tornadic supercells found in the literature.
