Extreme Weather

EXTREME

Weather has always been one of the most dynamic and complex forces shaping our planet, but now it’s intensifying in varied and complex ways. Extreme Weather takes us to the frontlines where few have gone.

Among the melting tidewater glaciers of Alaska, National Geographic Emerging Explorer Dr. Erin Pettit leads a young team of researchers into the splash zone at the face of Dawes Glacier aboard a boat custom-designed to get as close as possible to the calving ice. Using a variety of instruments, her team works to measure the rate of melting to help build a more accurate model of global ocean level rise.

Features

Extreme Weather will take you on a journey, from ice to fire to tornados, while illustrating how all of these extreme elements are connected. Understanding this interconnectedness is one of the keys to living in a world where extreme weather is becoming the norm. And scientists are working to unlock other keys that will help us predict and survive the extreme weather to come.
