NC State students Jason Davis and Keith Sherburn presented a portion of their High Shear Low CAPE (HSLC) CSTAR related research at the 26th Conference on Severe Local Storms in Nashville TN last week. Both presentations were made on Wednesday in the Severe Weather Climatology I session. Video of their presentations along with their extended abstracts should be added to the AMS web site during the coming weeks. The formal presentation titles along with links to their abstracts are shown below.
9.1 Identifying Discriminating Environmental Features Between High Shear/Low CAPE Severe Convection and Null Events
Keith D. Sherburn, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC; and M. D. Parker
9.2 Radar Climatology of Tornadoes Occurring in High Shear/Low CAPE Environments in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast
Jason M. Davis, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC; and M. D. Parker
Unfortunately, because of travel funding issues, a related poster presentation was withdrawn. Justin Lane coordinated a poster produced by several authors highlighting some of the NWS’ contributions to the HSLC project.
