A few of us are re-awakening the long-dormant public NYC seminar series of the NYC / Long Island chapter of the American Meteorological Society, with 1-2 evening events held per semester at Columbia University. The webpage for seminars is:
The first event will feature Kerry Emanuel, professor of atmospheric science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, speaking on “Assessing storm surge risk at New York City”. There will be 1-2 events per semester, covering topics ranging from atmospheric science, physical oceanography, meteorology, climate, hydrology, and so forth. The event will be followed by a one-hour reception. Reply to this post if you’d like be added to the attendance list!

Kerry Emanuel is a professor of atmospheric science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, member of the National Academy of Sciences, and winner of the Carl Gustaf Rossby Research Medal from the American Meteorological Society, its highest honor. He is most well-known for his work on ocean heat and tropical cyclones, and more recently on relating this to climate change. He is currently primarily working on various aspects of moist convection in the atmosphere, and on tropical cyclones. He is interested in fundamental properties of moist convection, including the scaling of convective velocities and the nature of the diurnal cycle of convection over land. His group has developed a promising technique for inferring tropical cyclone activity from coarse-grain output of climate models or re-analyses.
I’d like to reserve a spot.
