Spatiotemporal patterns of extreme hurricanes impacting US coastal cities
Description: US coastal cities are regularly subjected to destruction by tropical cyclones. The risk of tropical cyclone winds varies along the length of the coastline. Here researchers analyze landfalling North Atlantic basin tropical cyclones whose intensities are considered extreme relative to their landfall location. Of interest is the spatial and temporal patterns of these extreme hurricane wind events for fifteen coastal cities. [Source: Natural Hazards]
