A new study led by Columbia scientists suggests that climate change could soon eliminate an atmospheric barrier that protects much of the U.S. East Coast from powerful hurricanes.
A new project led by Adam Sobel, an atmospheric scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory is looking for the fingerprints of climate change in the hurricanes of today, so we’ll know what to expect in the near future.
A team of weather and storm experts, including Columbia’s Suzana Camargo, is working to enhance climate models; the project will help to improve forecasts of intense hurricanes like Hurricane Florence.
Hurricane and disaster experts within the Earth Institute are closely monitoring Hurricane Florence and recently weighed in on some of the biggest questions about the storm.
Climate scientists at Columbia University have developed a new, global hurricane model for estimating the long-term hazard of rare, high impact storms under different climate scenarios. The researchers hope the new system will lead to storm risk and hazard assessments for major cities.
