During the past two decades, remarkable advances have been made in the understanding of the structure and dynamics of tornadoes and tornado storms. This knowledge has led to improvements in prediction capability, procedures for issue and dissemination of warnings, and the practice of hazard mitigation. This progress can be attributed to the development of Doppler radars, wind profilers, lightning ground?]strike location detectors, and automated surface observing systems; to the application of multispectral satellite data; to improvements in numerical simulation of clouds and storms; to the deployment of mobile storm?]intercept teams with means to make quantitative observations; and to improved understanding of how structures fail when subjected to tornadoes.
