Global climate models do not easily downscale for regional predictions

Dr. Mann and Dr. Fuqing Zhang both professors of meteorology at The Pennsylvania State University were concerned that the direct use of climate model output would produce inaccurate information. They focused on temperature and precipitation in their research on global climate models. 

NYC risks future flooding during hurricanes

Mann Research Group graduate student Andra Reed has a new article in theProceedings of the National Acadamies of Sciences about the impact of climate change on coastal flooding due the combined effect of storm surges from stronger hurricanes and sea level rise.
