Chasing Tornadoes

Featured Video Play Icon

Tornadoes are some of the most powerful storms on Earth. Their difficult-to-predict nature means that we still have a relatively scant understanding of exactly how they form. We know the conditions that promote their development — warm, moist rising air, wind shear, and rotation — but how and when those translate into a dangerous funnel cloud is harder to pin down. In this video, we hear from one of National Geographic’s storm researchers, Anton Seimon, who chases these storms in search of answers. (Image and video credit: National Geographic)
