We simulated three heavy summer precipitation events in Alberta, Canada, using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model and compared the output precipitation data with observations to determine model accuracy. Each storm was simulated multiple times, using five different cumulus...
Possible thunderstorm modifications caused by the Athabasca oil sands development and the Canadian ShieldDownload
Thunderstorms are common in boreal forest regions and can cause dangerous hazards such as lightning, forest fires, hail, wind, and flooding. Significant research has been conducted to help predict thunderstorms to mitigate or avoid the hazards and damage. The development of thunderstorms...
Thunderstorms have the potential to produce severe weather and can result in significant financial and human losses. The province of Alberta is one of Canada’s most active thunderstorm regions, with the record for insured damage due to hail. Therefore, it is crucial that thunderstorm forecasts be...
