HARRISON, N.Y. -- The Purchase College School of Natural and Social Sciences will present its latest installment of the lecture series, "Wolf, Wolf: Weather Forecasting, Hurricane Sandy, and Global Climate Change," on Sept. 17 from 6 to 9 p.m.
The lecture, led by Research Professor of Meteorology and Scientific Computing Dr. Joel Tenenbaum, will examine the technical and structural issues that led to massive flooding and damage in New York City and Staten Island during Superstorm Sandy -- and what could be done differently if and when another storm like Sandy hits again.
"How in an era of live television reports of rising water at Battery Park City do we get vulnerable Staten Islanders to actually seek higher ground? How in an era of NASA Sky Cranes delivering the Curiosity rover to Mars do we put fuel for hospital emergency power supplies in the basement and not have corks for our tunnels?" Tennenbaum asks in a statement.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
