Future Storminess: Hurricanes & Tornadoes in a Warmer World

Lecture Location: 
FSU Coastal and Marine Lab, 3618 US-98, FL 32358

James Elsner, chair of the Department of Geography and an expert on hurricanes and tornadoes, gives a talk about an important question for those living in coastal communities: What will storms be like in the future?

Scientists have yet to work out all the answers but Elsner has contributed some important clues. According to him, hurricanes are getting stronger, driven by the increasing ocean warmth, and tornadoes appear to be coming in bigger and more powerful bunches.
