Seminar Series: Tim Marshall

Tim Marshall, P.E., Meteorologist Principal Engineer, Haag Engineering, Dallas, TX “Survey Damage Assessments of Structural Tornado Damage and the Enhanced Fujita Scale, and Instrumenting the Storm Environment of the 2016 Sulfur Tornado.”

This talk discusses the intersection of engineering and meteorology in assessing severe storm damage. Here an example of surveying damage to structures left in the wake of tornadoes is presented in the context of the Enhanced Fujita (EF) Scale, the rating system for tornado damage intensity. Also to be discussed is the May 2016 Sulfur, OK, EF-3 Tornado where Marshall’s chase team from the Center of Severe Weather Research deployed instrumented pods in front of two tornadoes with the second tornado hitting one of the instrument pods.
