Predicting and Adapting to Increased Hurricane Risk

The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study welcomes Kerry A. Emanuel, Professor of Atmospheric Science and Co-director of The Lorenz Center, MIT, to give a lecture as part of their Oceans Lecture Series. Tropical cyclones (a.k.a. hurricanes) are a leading cause of mortality and damage among all natural hazards. This lecture will review the latest research on these fascinating storms, explain why their destructiveness is expected to increase, and discuss ways of dealing with the increasing risk.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 4:45 p.m.; lecture begins at 5 p.m.
