A study that analyzed the entire 2020 North Atlantic hurricane season — in conjunction with human activity that affects climate change — found that hourly hurricane rainfall totals were up to 10 percent higher compared to hurricanes that took place in the pre-industrial (1850) era. Led by Kevin A. Reed, an associate professor in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at Stony Brook University, the study findings, which are published in Nature Communications, are another indicator of the effect of climate change on rainfall totals.
