New publication on ensemble-based forecasting for Tropical Cyclone Isaias (2020) co-authored by Philip Orton, Principal Investigator with the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN)

The study, published in the Journal of Weather and Climate Extremes, found that the use of ensemble-based flood forecasting systems are more advanced than single forecasting systems, as they provide better information that can be used in emergency management decision making in the event of a disaster.
