Weather Prognosis & Vulnerability

A collaborative interdisciplinary assessment of weather and the changing climate's impact on weather in Puerto Rico as part of a CUNY Collaborative Grant led by Dr. Nathan Hosannah and Dr. Ryan Mann-Hamilton. Weather forecasting is an indispensable utility that facilitates efficient crop irrigation, transportation, and preparation for extreme events. Accurate forecasts are particularly important to communities in the tropics. As part of the project we produced a short film titled From a Presentiment to the Radar: Imprecise Forecasts—Climate, Weather and Agriculture in Puerto Rico.
