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.

In November 1950, a freak storm spawned a record storm surge in Atlantic City and a near-record surge at Sandy Hook. Rutgers scientists are studying weather systems known as extratropical cyclones or nontropical storms, and the storm surges they have generated along the northern East Coast.

A group of researchers at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas has built a much smaller ring laser interferometer to explore how it could detect geophysical effects such as earthquake-generated ground rotation and infrasound from convective storms and have demonstrated the technology's potential as an early-warning system for natural disasters.
