Batten Down The Hatches

A new study by Kerry Emanuel, a hurricane researcher at MIT, finds that tropical cyclones are likely to become both stronger and more frequent in the years to come, especially in the western North Pacific and the North Atlantic.

Emanuel’s study, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, uses the latest generation of global climate models to power a series of high-resolution, regional simulations of tropical cyclones around the world.
