Caption: Tornado made by a laboratory apparatus. These model tornadoes are used to study the structure of wind velocities inside the vortex. Each year the complex nature of tornadoes gets better understood. Experiments like these lead give Meteorologists and weather forecasters the ability to predict the path of a tornado with greater accuracy.
