Researchers Catch Extreme Waves with Higher-Resolution Modeling

A new Berkeley Lab study shows that high-resolution models captured hurricanes and big waves that low-resolution ones missed. Better extreme wave forecasts are important for coastal cities, the military, the shipping industry, and surfers.

Hurricane Risk to Northeast U.S. Coast Increasing, Research Warns

New research published in the journal Scientific Reports and co-authored by an Associate Professor at Skidmore College suggests the Northeastern coast of the U.S. could be struck by more frequent and more powerful hurricanes in the future due to shifting weather patterns.
