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.

​Researchers Predict Power Outages Caused by Hurricane Matthew

COLUMBUS, Ohio – An interdisciplinary team of researchers is using a unique model to predict how many U.S. residents will lose power because of Hurricane Matthew.As of Thursday morning, Oct. 6, the team predicted 9.6 million people will lose electricity.The model was developed by researchers from The Ohio State University, University of Michigan and Texas A&M University.

As the Climate Warms, We Are ‘Primed’ for Worse Storms Than Sandy

SandyUSFWS-mantolokingNJ-Thompson.jpg

With the climate warming and the sea level rising, conditions are ripe for storms deadlier and more devastating than Sandy that put more people at risk. That’s the outlook from David A. Robinson, a Rutgers geography professor who has served as the New Jersey state climatologist for 25 years.
