Welcome to the ICWR. Founded in 2008, the ICWR is an independent non-gorvernmental organization comprised of individuals from around the world who are interested in the field of waterspouts from a research, operational and safety perspective. Originally conceived as a forum for researchers and meteorologists, the ICWR has now expanded interest and contribution from storm chasers, the media, the marine and aviation communities and from private individuals.
