Most widely held works by Joshua Wurman
Tornado intercept( Visual )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A meteorologist and an IMAX filmmaker drive into the heart of a tornado in a custom built 8,000-pound vehicle of steel plating and bulletproof glass
Hunt for the supertwister( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A powerful tornado is a terrifying phenomenon that continues to defy decades of scientific efforts to predict it. During one of the worst tornado seasons on record, a NOVA camera team chased across the Midwest, capturing hair-raising footage of highly destructive twisters in action. But HUNT FOR THE SUPERTWISTER is much more than just another "extreme weather" show. Our story focuses on the efforts of two scientists at the University of Oklahoma to develop radically different approaches to forecasting twisters: one relies on "virtual tornados" created inside supercomputers, while the other involves hunting down real-life storms to collect data firsthand (the method that inspired the movie Twister). With jaw-dropping 3-D graphics generated by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, NOVA's show features spectacular footage of these terrifying twisters. HUNT FOR THE SUPERTWISTER gives viewers a front-row seat to the risky and thrilling art of storm chasing, complete wit
Storm chasers( Visual )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Storm chasers: Hunt for devastating, violent twisters that rip through America's Great Plains, better known as "Tornado Alley." Research meteorologist Josh Wurman and extreme filmmaker Sean Casey put their lives on the line to capture this unprecedented footage shot from inside tornadoes tearing their way across the central U.S. Shooting from a 14,00-pound tank topped with a custom-designed filming turret, see what the team encounters as they drive straight into these deadly storms
Satellite climatology of thunderstorm initiation sites in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and northern New Mexico by Crystal L. B Schaaf( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of mechanisms produce the convection necessary to initiate thunderstorms over mountainous terrain (that is, orographic lifting, channeling, wake effects, and leeside convergence zones). Mountain ranges are often poorly populated and instrumented, and forecasting severe mountain storms can be a problem. However, studies of satellite imagery of the Rockies of Colorado and northern New Mexico have emphasized the importance of certain topographic regions in producing convection. By tracing individual summer thunderstorms back through time to their initiation sits, it has been possible to identify specific mountainous areas that repeatedly serve as genesis regions for thunderstorms. The identification of these genesis regions and the terrain mechanisms at work. An understanding of the wind regimes and moisture fields is also necessary to recognize the conditions necessary to activate each region. This report is the culmination of a 3-year study of satellite imagery and thunderstorm initiation sites of the Rocky Mountains. (Author)

NOVA( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little on earth can withstand the violent fury of an F5 tornado. A churning vortex with wind speeds over 300mph, these tornadoes create immense swaths of death and destruction in a matter of seconds. Today, experts are exploring the supertwister's complex inner workings in bold new ways in the hopes of one day being able to accurately predict the occurrences of tornadoes. Top scientists and meteorologists work within miles of these furocious twisters to gather data and create forcasting models that may someday save countless lives
