PERiLS_2023: Propagation, Evolution and Rotation in Linear Storms 2023


PERiLS (Propagation, Evolution and Rotation in Linear Storms) builds upon the results of the VORTEX-SE campaigns adding critical instruments to provide the sampling necessary to address environmental factors and storm processes that lead to quasi-linear convective systems (QLCS) tornadogenesis. The long-range goal is to improve the understanding and prediction of tornadoes associated with QLCSs, which have received comparatively little study, are poorly understood, and present substantial operational challenges. Field operations will be conducted over the southeastern United States with an extensive collection of mobile profiling instrumentation, radars, soundings, and weather stations. This project covers the 2023 deployment. There was also a deployment in 2022.
