GSO professor Isaac Ginis and his colleagues have simulated a hypothetical but plausible storm dubbed “Hurricane Rhody” that slows down after making landfall in Rhode Island, makes a loop and returns for a second landfall two days later.Continue reading "Future hurricane could loop around and make landfall twice in the U.S."
Tropical cyclones broke some records in 2018, and they also churned up the ocean surface and left swaths of cooler water in their wake. GSO professor Isaac Ginis says that the surface cooling effect can span hundreds of kilometers across the ocean surface and typically reach 500 to 650 feet down into the ocean. The […]Continue reading "Cyclone Effects Run Deep"
