A typhoon in a climate model
A typhoon over the western North Pacific ocean heads towards the coast, simulated by a state-of-the-art global climate model. Climate models at high resolution (~25 km “pixel” size) can realistically simulate tropical cyclones (hurricanes or typhoons). Such capacity opens the door for scientific investigations of these high-impact extreme events under the present and projected future climates, with the benefit of informing disaster risk management for the world’s coastal regions.
