The Baton Rouge Geological Society Presents:

Jay Grymes

ABSTRACT:

With more than 20 landfalls since the beginning of the 21st Century, Louisiana has suffered through the most active two decades of tropical impacts on the books for the Bayou State.  The uptick in activity is linked to a run of increased activity for the entire Atlantic Basin but seems to be at frequencies higher than the recent rises in basinwide storm counts.  We take a look at the long-term records and examine the status and outlook for 2022.
