Hurricanes are nature's most destructive agents. Widespread interest surrounds the possibility that they might get even more destructive in the future. Policy makers consider ita call for action. Answers about when and by how much hurricanes will change are soughtby financial institutions especially industry. And scientists are challenged by the range andinteractions of the processes involved. This book, arising from the 2nd International Summiton Hurricanes and Climate Change, contains new research on topics related to hurricanesand climate change since the 1st Summit. Chapters are grouped into research studies usingglobal climate models and those taking empirical and statistical approaches. The latterinclude investigations of basin-wide and regional hurricane activity.
