    • Spatial and Temporal Analysis of Tornado Fatalities in the United States: 1880-2005 

      Ashley, Walker S. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-12)
      A dataset of killer tornadoes is compiled and analyzed spatially in order to assess region-specific vulnerabilities in the United States from 1880 to 2005. Results reveal that most tornado fatalities occur in the lower–Arkansas, ...
    • The Storm Morphology of Deadly Flooding Events in the United States 

      Ashley, Sharon T.; Ashley, Walker S. (Royal Meteorological Society, 2008)
      This study investigates the synoptic and mesoscale environments associated with deadly flooding events in the United States from 1996 to 2005. A manual environment classification scheme, which includes analyses of ...
    • Synoptic-Scale Features Common to Heavy Snowstorms in the Southeast United States 

      Bentley, M.L.; Mote, Thomas L.; Gamble, Douglas W.; Underwood, S. Jeffrey (American Meteorological Society, 1997-03)
      Eighteen heavy snowstorms in the Southeast are examined to determine the synoptic-scale features common to these storms. Storm-relative composites in the temporal domain are created by assigning a "zero hour" to each storm ...
    • Temporal and Spatial Characteristics of Snowstorms in the Contiguous United States 

      Changnon, David; Changnon, Stanley A.; Karl, Thomas R. (American Meteorological Society, 2006-08)
      A climatological analysis of snowstorms across the contiguous United States, based on data from 1222 weather stations with data during 1901–2001, defined the spatial and temporal features. The average annual incidence ...
