Tornado forecasting remains a persistent challenge. Researchers using supercomputers at the National Institute for Computational Sciences are trying to change this. Modest hardware enables researchers to simulate a supercell, said the researchers, but supercomputers can run at a high enough resolution to properly capture tiny features associated with the tornado itself.
