Increasing Tropical Cyclone Precipitation Amounts over the Past 300+ Years

Dr. Justin Maxwell
When:  Friday, Feb 26th, at 3:30 p.m.
Where: Department of Geography and Geosciences, Webinar

Dr. Maxwell is an Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies for the Department of Geography at Indiana University – Bloomington. He has a PhD from University of North Carolina at Greensboro and studies Climatology, Biogeography and Paleoclimatology.

This seminar talk will highlight challenges in detecting long-term variability and trends in the proximate cause of changes in inland flooding from extreme tropical cyclone precipitation (TCP) amounts. Dr. Maxwell will present an analysis of a 318-year record of seasonal total TCP based on the latewood ring widths from the region in North America that receives the most TCP: coastal North and South Carolina, USA.
