El Nino Ahead?

NOAA's climate prediction center has issued an El Nino watch, which here in Hawai'i could mean a return to drought-like conditions and an increase in hurricane threats. Climate experts are saying there are no guarantees, but they believe there is a 50% chance El Nino will develop over the next six months.

Computer simulations have shown that offshore wind farms with thousands of wind turbines could have sapped the power of three real-life hurricanes, significantly decreasing their winds and accompanying storm surge, and possibly preventing billions of dollars in damages. In the case of Hurricane Katrina, the computer model revealed that an array of 78,000 wind turbines off the coast of New Orleans would have significantly weakened the hurricane well before it made landfall.

Coastal managers can make better decisions and possibly save millions of dollars through a computer model that helps them to understand the long-term effects of major storms, sea-level rise and beach restoration activities and possibly save millions of dollars. The model uses 154 years of storm and erosion data following tropical storms and hurricanes that hit Santa Rosa Island, off Florida’s Panhandle, and sea-level rise projections to predict beach habitat changes over the next 90 years.

Winter in the Arctic is not only cold and dark; it is also storm season when hurricane-like cyclones traverse the northern waters from Iceland to Alaska. These cyclones are characterized by strong localized drops in sea level pressure, and as Arctic-wide decreases in sea level pressure are one of the expected results of climate change, this could increase extreme Arctic cyclone activity, including powerful storms in the spring and fall. A new study uses historical climate model simulations to demonstrate that there has been an Arctic-wide decrease in sea level pressure since the 1800′s.

Outsmarting nature during disasters: Instead of winging it, planners need to think carefully about costs and benefits
The dramatic images of natural disasters, including hurricanes Katrina and Sandy and the Tohoku, Japan, earthquake and tsunami, show that nature, not the people preparing for hazards, often wins the high-stakes game of chance. In a recent presentation, a geophysicist uses general principles and case studies to explore how communities can do better by taking an integrated view of natural hazards issues, rather than treating the relevant geoscience, engineering, economics and policy formulation separately.

Researchers compared the impact of two tropical cyclones that occurred in Guam in 1997 and 2004 on the resilience and health of the native tree species Cycas micronesica. Findings revealed that 100 percent recovery followed the 1997 typhoon, but infestations of two invasive insects were responsible for 100 percent mortality of the trees during the 5 years after the 2004 typhoon. The invasive pests eliminated the species’ resilience to tropical cyclone damage in less than 10 years between the two typhoons.

From 2000 to 2010, about 1,900 cyclones churned across the top of the world each year, leaving warm water and air in their wakes — and melting sea ice in the Arctic Ocean. That’s about 40 percent more than previously thought, according to a new analysis of these Arctic storms.

Results of a rapid response marine geophysical survey off Long Island following Hurricane Sandy show that despite the devastation on land, Sandy did not significantly disrupt the offshore barrier system that protects Long Island from long-term erosion. As a result, residents can rebuild with greater confidence the land will not begin to erode out from under them. The survey also found evidence of pollutants transferred to the offshore waters from Long Island’s south shore estuaries.
