Sep 15, 2019

Purdue University Assistant Professor of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, Dan Chavas, researches severe weather, tornadoes, hurricanes and works on answering such questions as why do we have close to 100 hurricanes per year (globally) instead of 10 or even 1,000 hurricanes? Dan talks about the use of climate models to study weather, and why eastern North America is such a hotspot for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes on Earth.
