  • Compares high-resolution computer simulations of 22 historical, named Atlantic storms with a second set of simulations that are identical except for a warmer, wetter climate that is consistent with the average outcome of scientific projections for the end of this century
  • Finds that if the 22 recent hurricanes formed near the end of this century the hurricanes would become a little stronger, a little slower moving , and a lot wetter
