As hurricane Ian bore down on Florida just a few weeks ago, it was a startling reminder that climate-related weather events are an increasing threat.
The US is investing in technology to predict how bad storms like Hurricane Ian will strike in the future.
These supercomputers would enable scientists to access higher-resolution images of the earth’s atmosphere and oceans. This would give them a more detailed view on smaller patterns and trends emerging in storms being watched, as well as powering the simulation of more complex storm models.
Our hearts go out to the families and businesses recovering from this devastating hurricane!
