Climatology, storm morphologies, and environments of tornadoes in the British Isles: 1980–2012

Article English OPEN
Mulder, Kelsey J.; Schultz, David M.;

A climatology is developed for tornadoes during 1980–2012 in the British Isles, defined in this article as England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man. The climatology includes parent storm type, interannual vari... View more
