Breakthroughs in Weather Forecasting

Typhoons are some of the most powerful storms on Earth. And climate change is expected to make them even stronger in coming years. In this episode, we'll see how sea level differences, on-the-spot measurements of atmospheric conditions, and new computer simulations can help us better understand and predict these massive storms. We even follow a research team into the eye of a typhoon! And we'll also see an ultra-detailed weather simulator for urban areas.
