Start Jul 21, 2018 2:00 PM
End Jul 21, 2018 3:00 PM
Broadcast Room ML-Main Seminar Room

The NCAR Explorer Series continues with a talk by NCAR scientist Dr. Rebecca Morss, from MMM.

Date:  Saturday, July 21 at 2 p.m.

Abstract: Hurricane forecasts have improved significantly during the last few decades, but accurately predicting where and when a hurricane will make landfall remains challenging. Even more challenging is communicating the potential for high winds, flooding, and associated impacts in different regions, especially with enough warning for coastal residents to evacuate safely before landfall. In this presentation, Dr. Rebecca Morss will discuss the successes and challenges of hurricane forecasting and risk communication, including major events of the devastating 2017 hurricane season.
