Sobel: There's Another Weird Tropical Cyclone Headed to the Middle East

Adam H. Sobel, Professor of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics and of Earth and Environmental Sciences, was featured in the article, "There's Another Weird Tropical Cyclone Headed to the Middle East," by Brian Kahn in the Science section of Earther.com.

Cyclone Mekunu, a Category 3 storm which made a historic landfall in southwest Oman, followed only a week after Cyclone Sagar. “This is definitely an anomalously active moment, especially with both storms making landfall, and this current one looking to be pretty intense by the standards of the region,” Adam Sobel, a extreme weather expert at Columbia, told Earther.
