  • Air mass ; Atmospheric dynamics ; Climatic index ; Climatology ; Cluster analysis ; Ocean atmosphere interaction ; Principal components analysis ; Synoptic climatology ; Tornado ; Tropical cyclone ; United States of America ; Virginia
  • The goal of this research is to determine the extent to which Virginia tornado events are characterized by different air-mass and air-flow characteristics. The AA. hypothesize that several distinctly different synoptic weather situations
  • are responsible for Virginia tornadoes and that the values of a suite of instability and severe-weather indices used for predicting tornadic activity are significantly different among these air-mass types.
