"Hurricanes and Hurricane Risk in a Changing Climate"

Wednesday, March 12, 3:30 pm ET

Presented by the Northeast Climate Science Center 

Kerry Emanuel, MIT 

In this talk, Dr. Emanuel will review hurricanes and the various kinds of hazards they present to us, and go on to talk about how geology, history, and physics can all be used to help assess the risk of these hazards today and going forward, as our climate warms.

Speaker Bio: Kerry Emanuel is an atmospheric scientist and professor of meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is one of the world’s leading authorities on hurricanes. His research focuses on atmospheric convection and the physics of hurricanes. In particular, he has explored the possibility that recent climate change, along with other factors, has contributed to the increased hurricane activity in the Atlantic. He has also contributed to the development of a new technique for assessing tropical cyclone risk. Kerry is the author of Divine Wind: The History and Science of Hurricanes and Atmospheric Convection, a very influential book in the atmospheric science community. In 2007, he was elected as a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences.
