IPCC Models and Hurricanes
mov, 14 Mb
Animation illustrates the factors likely to influence Atlantic hurricanes under CO2-induced global warming. On the one hand, the oceans are projected to get warmer, increasing the thermodynamic potential of hurricanes. On the other hand, vertical wind shear is projected to increase, the effect of which should be opposite to that of the warming oceans. gfdl.noaa.gov/prod
