Climate Change Impacts: Lessons from the Dubai Floods

Today’s episode is brought to you by Empower your podcasting vision with a suite of creative solutions at your fingertips.

Dubai recently faced a once-in-a-generation superstorm, resulting in extensive flooding that even impacted the airport runway.

In this episode of the Freeman Chronicle podcast, Professor Steven Sherwood from the University of New South Wales discusses the primary causes of the flooding event in Dubai. He explains that while such events are rare in the region, the storm system, possibly influenced by moisture from the Persian Gulf, led to the heavy rainfall. The discussion also touches on the challenges of attributing these events to climate change in a desert area where severe rains are uncommon.
