Heavy summer rains from saltier seas?

Ocean salinity may better predict heavy summer rainfall earlier, which could help with crop planting forecasts and flood management preparation. 

Exploring extreme rain solutions

Older cities rarely have the infrastructure to handle heavy rain, but Middletown, Pa., is investigating how to prepare for more frequent and severe storms.

Better forecasts with existing data

A new technique using readily available data could improve how scientists forecast the track, intensity, and rainfall of future storms.

Understanding extreme rain

An international effort to study extreme rainfall brought a team of Penn State researchers to one of the wettest regions in the world.

Extreme Weather Researchers

Anthony C. Didlake Jr.

Anthony Didlake's research interests span topics in tropical, radar, and mesoscale meteorology. His primary research is on using radars and numerical models to understand the dynamics of tropical cyclones.

Colin Zarzycki

Colin Zarzycki's research is centered around simulating extreme atmospheric phenomena and bridging the gap between weather and climate. In particular, he is focused on cutting-edge, high-resolution modeling techniques.
