Vortex Gas Models for Tornadogenesis and Maintenance

Processes associated to the formation of vorticity in the front and rear flank downdrafts, as well as their interaction with the boundary layer, are hypothesised to impact tornadogenesis. Our objective is to demonstrate that vortex gas models are a useful tool for describing tornadogenesis and maintenance processes. We argue that an inverse energy cascade is…
