The Earth Institute's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory's Public Lectures presents "The Science Behind Sandy," with Adam Sobel, Professor, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, Columbia University.
Open to the public. RSVP recommended.
As Hurricane Sandy bore down on New York City, atmospheric scientist Adam Sobel became the center of a media storm, with reporters from major news outlets anxious to ask him about Sandy. Today, Sobel will revisit and answer the meteorological questions they raised: What kind of storm was Sandy? How well was it predicted? How rare an event was it? Was it a 50-year, 100-year or 1000-year storm? Can we expect more storms like Sandy in the future?
