The increase in losses resulting from severe convective storms continues to outpace advances in detection, forecasting, and mitigation. Hailstorms account for a large percentage of these losses; however, research activities focused on improving the ability to detect, forecast, and mitigate against this hazard have lagged behind those for hurricanes and tornadoes. The rapid advancement in high-performance computing has opened the door to new research into hailstorms through simulations of individual thunderstorms and their internal processes. As a result of this research, IBHS member companies have the opportunity to leverage new strategies for hail forecasting and more accurately simulating potential loss scenarios. The following research summary provides a brief synopsis.
