Busalacchi hurricane Op-ed featured in Post

AOSC professor and former ESSIC Director, Antonio Busalacchi was featured in a Washington Post Capital Weather Gang Op-ed on the need to further U.S. hurricane prediction and preparedness. Busalacchi, who’s currently serving as President of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) notes that while our forecasting capabilities remain remarkably good, further efforts are needed to sharpen forecasts, particularly when considering the evacuation of highly populated areas and with respect to the economic and infrastructure upheaval associated with the storms.
