While much of the focus on #Dorian has been on the gale force winds, #stormsurge will play a huge role in the #hurricane’s catastrophic impact, says Prof @KyleMandli. Given Dorian’s current track, a widespread surge is expected from Fl to the Carolin

Kyle Mandli models and simulates storm scenarios to develop strategies to protect against coastal disasters. He is especially focused on the impact of storm surge and sea level rise in a warming climate. An assistant professor of applied mathematics at Columbia Engineering, he studies the computational and analytical aspects of geophysical shallow mass flows such as tsunamis, debris-flow, and storm-surge.
