Climate scientist and physicist Adam Sobel of Columbia University and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory joins the Secret Science Club to discuss the science of Sandy. He asks:
--How did Sandy evolve into a superstorm and why was it so devastating? Are more powerful hurricanes and megastorms in our future?
--What meteorological models and techniques were used to project Sandy's destructive path? What do we need to know in order to be better prepared?
--How will climate change affect forecasting, sea levels, urban storm surge models, and future weather events?
Before & After the Talk
--Don't miss the clement Q&A!
