We propose to use our best available theoretical and modeling tools to generate estimates of the climate change signal present today in multiple measures of hurricane activity and hurricane risk. Statistical tests will then be used to determine to what extent these estimates are consistent or inconsistent with observations, and what the most likely climate change signal is when both model and observations are accounted for.
OUTCOMES: The research team developed an estimate of the climate change influence on current and near-future Atlantic hurricane risk.
