Extreme storms represent some of the most violent events of Earth. Their genesis, growth, trajectory and their intensity at landfall represent a set of complex interactions between ocean, atmosphere, and land. Our group is interested on better understanding these processes using a range of technologies with a focus on hurricanes, typhoons, and winter storms. The focus is on understanding factors controlling the trajectory and intensity of the storm at landfall, the corresponding impact on coastal surge, and the feedbacks on coastal communities.
