Understanding and Attributing Tropical Cyclone Intensity and Frequency Changes in the 20th and 21st Centuries

Lead PI: Mingfang Ting , Dr. Suzana J. Camargo

Unit Affiliation: Ocean and Climate Physics, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

August 2010 - July 2014
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The team will separate multidecadal variability from anthropogenic forcing to model how the two different forcings affect hurricane intensity.

OUTCOMES: Found that 20th century potential intensity changes ere dominated by natural forcings but late 21st the opposite will be true and potential intensity will increase.
