This session focuses on trends in tornadoes (or tornado characteristics) with regards to changes in climate and society. Tornadoes are capable of producing catastrophic destruction and mass casualties, making it important to advance knowledge of the relationships between tornado activity and climate variables, as well as the relationships between tornado activity and society. As our climate warms, and as our population grows, understanding the changes in the physical risk and potential impacts of tornadoes becomes even more crucial in making efforts to decrease the threat to life, property, and the environment.
