About Us

The Severe Weather Analysis and Prediction System (SWAPS) was established at the Istanbul Technical University in 2019. SWAPS’s mission is typically the development of techniques for the computer-based numerical prediction of high-impact local weather.

SWAPS’s main purpose is to investigate the dynamics of Mesoscale Convective Systems (MCSs) including tornadic supercells, hazardous storms and to present the model products on a daily and weekly basis.

The Severe Weather Analysis and Prediction System is tasked with forecasting the risk of severe thunderstorms, hail activities, medicanes/hurricanes, tornadoes in the Europe and USA.
