Northern Tornadoes Project: Systematically identifying, classifying, and examining the impacts of every tornado in Canada

Dr. Gregory Kopp

Abstract: The Northern Tornadoes Project, founded in 2017, has been identifying and classifying every tornado in Canada since 2019 with the distinct goals of:
(i) systematically capturing data in remote and sparsely populated regions,
(ii) developing and utilizing the latest tools, techniques, and methods to improve identification, classification, and data associated with tornadoes, and
(iii) utilizing the data to examine the impacts in order to increase the resilience of society.
The presentation will discuss the current approaches and things we have learned, but also point out where there is a need for new tools, methods, and research.
