Guest: Wei Mei, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Scholar at Scripps Institute of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is predicting the current hurricane and typhoon season – which started in May and goes until October – will produce an above-normal number typhoons coming off the Pacific Ocean. New research out of the Scripps Institute of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego indicates typhoons will be stronger and more intense in the coming years, thanks to warmer surface temperatures on the Pacific Ocean.
