Already, there is evidence that the winds of some storms may be changing. A
study based on more than two decades of satellite altimeter data (measuring
sea surface height) showed that hurricanes intensify significantly faster
now than they did 25 years ago. Specifically, researchers found that storms
attain Category 3 wind speeds nearly nine hours faster than they did in the
1980s. Another satellite-based study found that global wind speeds had
increased by an average of 5 percent over the past two decades.
There is also evidence that extra water vapor in the atmosphere is making
storms wetter. During the past 25 years, satellites have measured a 4
percent rise in water vapor in the air column. In ground-based records,
about 76 percent of weather stations in the United States have seen
increases in extreme precipitation since 1948. One analysis found that
extreme downpours are happening 30 percent more often. Another study found
that the largest storms now produce 10 percent more precipitation.
William Lau, a scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, concluded in
a 2012 paper that rainfall totals from tropical cyclones in the North
Atlantic have risen at a rate of 24 percent per decade since 1988. The
increase in precipitation doesn't just apply to rain. NOAA scientists have
examined 120 years of data and found that there were twice as many extreme
regional snowstorms between 1961 and 2010 as there were from 1900 to 1960.
But measuring a storm's maximum size, heaviest rains, or top winds does not
capture the full scope of its power. Kerry Emanuel, a hurricane expert at
the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, developed a method to measure the
total energy expended by tropical cyclones over their lifetimes. In 2005, he
showed that Atlantic hurricanes are about 60 percent more powerful than they
were in the 1970s. Storms lasted longer and their top wind speeds had
increased by 25 percent. (Subsequent research has shown that the
intensification may be related to differences between the temperature of the
Atlantic and Pacific oceans.)
