The research builds on our understanding of processes leading to severe weather to investigate new knowledge obtainable from rapid-update data (~1-min volume scans). This work focuses on observational analysis of rapid-scan S-band phased-array radar data from our severe storm data base. Topics of interest include initiation of deep convection; transitions in storm mode; storm mergers; and evolution of hail, wind, and tornado-producing storms. As appropriate, the research involves analysis of complementary observational (e.g., dual-polarimetric radar) or numerical data sets.
