Navigating Changing Risk from Extreme Events
Unusual heat waves and droughts in unlikely regions. Heavy downpours that overwhelm infrastructure and bring massive flooding. Mega snow storms that cripple daily activities. Wicked high winds that cause the collapse of otherwise stable structures.
Such extreme weather events are becoming increasing common and have the power to devastate daily life. What’s their cause and how can society plan for such extreme weather events, if it can at all?
Join us as Argonne scientist Rao Kotamarthi discusses how science is helping society prepare for the risks and uncertainty of a changing climate.
