About this product
- DescriptionFor almost a decade, ecomists Kevin M. Simmons and Daniel Sutter have been studying the ecomic impacts and social consequences of the approximately 1,200 tornadoes that touch down across the United States annually. During this time, Simmons and Sutter have been compiling information from sources such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Census in order to examine the casualties caused by tornadoes and to evaluate the National Weather Service's efforts to reduce these casualties. In Ecomic and Societal Impacts of Tornadoes , Simmons and Sutter present their findings. This analysis will be extremely useful to anyone studying meteorology and imperative for anyone working in emergency disaster management.
