As the Gulf Coast braces for a potentially devastating Category 4 hurricane, Johns Hopkins University experts can discuss possible trajectories the storm can take, and what can be done to lessen the damage.

Available experts include:

A climate modeler, Anand Gnanadesikan looks at the atmospheric and oceanic circulation of the tropics, including how changes in circulation can affect hurricane formation. He can discuss how hurricanes develop and what determines their path and intensity.

A professor in the Johns Hopkins Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences, Gnanadesikan previously spent over fifteen years in NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.
