    • A Climatology of Fatal Convective Wind Events by Storm Type 

      Ashley, Walker S.; Schoen, Joseph M. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-10)
      There are still hundreds of casualties produced by thunderstorm hazards each year in the United States despite the many recent advances in prediction and mitigation of the effects of convective storms. Of the four most ...
    • A Multiscale Observational Case Study of the Development of an Isolated High Plains Tornadic Supercell 

      Bentley, M.L.; Buban, Michael; Cooper, Stonie (American Meteorological Society, 2002-07)
      On 21 May 1995, a strong tornado developed with an isolated supercell in southwestern Nebraska. Largescale conditions were not supportive of a tornadic thunderstorm outbreak; however, evidence suggests significant mesoscale ...
    • The relationship between tornadic and nontornadic convective wind fatalities and warnings 

      Ashley, Walker S.; Black, A.W. (American Meteorological Society, 2011)
      A database of tornado fatalities, nontornadic convective wind fatalities, severe thunderstorm warnings, and tornado warnings was compiled for the period 1986–2007 to assess the spatial and temporal distribution of warned ...
    • 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, ...
    • Vulnerability Due to Nocturnal Tornadoes 

      Ashley, Walker S.; Krmenec, Andrew; Schwantes, Rick (American Meteorological Society, 2008-10)
      This study investigates the human vulnerability caused by tornadoes that occurred between sunset and sunrise from 1880 to 2007. Nocturnal tornadoes are theorized to enhance vulnerability because they are difficult to spot ...
