Researchers to study extreme weather in the Northeast

(University of Massachusetts Lowell) As wildfires continue to ravage the West Coast, UMass Lowell researchers analyzing the reasons behind hot and dry conditions hope their work will offer greater understanding of extreme weather events across the country. UMass Lowell Prof. Mathew Barlow and Assistant Prof. Christopher Skinner, both of Medford, are examining why heat waves and droughts occur in the U.S. Northeast, along with the relationship between the two weather phenomena.
