Will extratropical cyclones along the U.S. East Coast be less common in a warmer climate? 13 July 2015

Will extratropical cyclones along the U.S. East Coast be less common in a warmer climate?

A new paper titled “A Review of Historical and Future Changes of Extratropical Cyclones and Associated Impacts Along the U.S. East Coast”, which was supported by the NOAA Climate Program Office’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) Program, has been published as part of a “Topical Collection on Extreme Events” in the academic journal Current Climate Change Reports.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
