Extreme Weather in a Changing Climate


Weather is normally abnormal with wild fluctuations from week to week. But with destruction of the Arctic sea ice and warmer ocean temperatures how might the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events change in the future? This talk presents an overview of what is predicted for the future of hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms, drought and flooding and illustrates how teaching these topics at the University of Michigan led to the development of a new educational technology that is now used by millions of students worldwide.
