Princeton University researchers look at the possibility of more tropical cyclones (TCs) and hurricanes in the future as a result of rising sea levels brought on by climate change. After only an average of 85 TCs between 2014 and 2017, Earth experienced an average of 100 TCs year between 2018 and 2021.“Rising sea levels and climate change make sequential damaging hurricanes more likely as the century progresses,” said Dr. Dazhi Xi, who is a postdoctoral researcher and a former graduate student at Princeton, lead author of the study. “Today’s extremely rare events will become far more frequent.”
