UnDisciplined: climate projections predict increased risk of joint surge rainfall events
The world has seen lots of extreme coastal weather events lately. hurricanes, typhoons and cyclones. A recent study both simulated the hazards of past cyclones and made predictions about future storms by 2100 cyclones could be 30 to 200 times more frequent, with changes due more to extreme rainfall than rises in sea level.
