PART III - 3D Views
|The inflow and updraft. The inflow not only transports warm, humid air into the storm but it imports rotation gained from the environment caused by wind shear. The mechanism is partly explained in Part II and more fully explained here: http://stevehorstmeyer.blogspot.com/2013/03/thunderstorm-primer-part-6-supercell.html|
The 3D volumetric time lapse shows the evolution of the supercell and how spectrum width and NROT coincide with the rotating updraft.
