The technique involves the digging of water-to-find, hurricane, sediment

BONITA SPRINGS, Florida. Months after the Hurricane, Michael, were in the Florida Panhandle, and the Sound slammed into the Florida Keys, the state is bracing for what comes next. A scientist is digging for the answer underwater.

“It is a relatively new branch of science,” said Joanne Muller, a research scientist at the Water School, Florida Gulf Coast University.

Muller said that they are “hollow” for more than 20 years of age. The technique consists of digging in the mud under the water, in order to detect information about a hurricane from a thousand years ago, which may help to predict how strong the future hurricanes, it will be used.

“We will sample the cores, we can date the sediment using the radio-metric tools, and we know how long that storm coats, it is going to go back in time,” Muller explained.

Through the examination of storm layers in the core, and Muller and explore the geologic record, with the help of the instructions, such as sand and sea shells..

“Well, We could say that the top is in a zero year, so it is today, and we will get the data in to the core. Maybe in 100 years, 1000 years, 2000 years etc., so that we can know when the storms of history, of how far they have to go back in time, and how many there have been, in different periods of time,” she said.

As a part of the hole process, of Muller, and her staff, for the use of a long aluminum tubes to draw samples from the manure and dirt off of the bottom. On a recent trip with Fox News, and the team took the samples at Estero Bay north of Naples, Florida, area, Muller said, and has seen a lot of hurricane activity in the past.

Once the sediment is underwater, they will have to cut the tubes in half and the beginning of their studies.

“We have a lot to look for in an organic soil. A lot of dark sediment, it really, really soft, fine-grained, we are able to get a heart on,” said Adam Catasus, a Florida Gulf Coast University and the researcher.

Once they are at the core of the samples, the scientist suctions the top surface of the aluminum tubes in order to prevent the sediment from falling out. Muller said that some of the most ancient of hurricane overwash layers, and her team have found to date to between 4,000 to 5,000 years ago.

Muller said in a patch they dug up, it was most likely created in the 1960’s when Hurricane Donna made landfall.

Muller drives to the aluminium pipe to the bottom of the sediment under the water and suctions to the top of the league with the red cap on the end of it until they split open for examination.

The study of patterns in the sediment, Muller points to the need to prove that the predictions of more severe hurricanes. It has now become a hurricane, the records with a view to the sea-surface temperatures, to predict that the chaos generated by the massive storm will make it as long as the sea temperatures continue to rise.

“What we see more intense hurricanes, and by 2017, it is a very good example of this. So, at the moment, we’re projecting that we’ll see more intense hurricanes in the future, and the fossil record-that is, we are just getting the result is the same,” Muller said.

Its predictions are consistent with the latest National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s forecasting.

NOAA warns of above-normal hurricane activity, with the possibility of five to nine hurricanes. At least two of those could be major hurricanes.

“The effort that we’ve got to get to work, trying to fill in the gaps of the National Hurricane Center’s HURDAT database. So, it is a database that contains all the information about the storms that have occurred on this day, it is going to be back up to around 160 years of age. The work that we’re doing is really trying to make sure that the database is in a much stronger position to fill in the gaps, so that we can be more realistic about hurricanes in the future,” Muller said.

According to The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the season has the potential to be very dangerous as well. There will be a 10-to 17-total of named storms, which is to be expected at this time that the storms were projected on a wind-up to 39 miles per hour or more. NOAA’s forecasts have predicted that not all of these storms expected to make landfall.

Muller said the significance of her work extends beyond research. “These communities, they tell a story, and it’s the thing that I love so much about geology, so there is a lot of history there. It is really important that we are able to understand it and make it as good as we can, so we can make more accurate predictions about the future.”

The hurricane season lasts until November. 30.
