[Webinar] Hurricanes in a Warming World
OIST Foundation Future of Climate Series:
Hurricanes in a Warming World
U.S.: Thursday, March 25 @ 7:30 PM EDT
Japan: Friday, March 26 @ 8:30 AM JST
In a thought-provoking article titled, Slower decay of landfalling hurricanes in a warming world, published in Nature on November 11, 2020, Chakraborty and co-author Lin Li, describe results of their research that suggest that “as the world continues to warm, the destructive power of hurricanes will extend progressively farther inland.” This research and its important implications have been featured in The New York Times, BBC, CNN, The Washington Post , National Geographic, The Guardian, Der Spiegel, Huffpost, Fox News, Nature News & Views and more.
Join the OIST Foundation to hear directly from the author about this important research on how hurricanes are changing in a warming world.
