SANDY: THE SUPERSTORM OF 2012 provides students an overview of how hurricanes and extratropical storms work before reviewing Sandy's development and cataloging the damage caused and its human impact. A concluding section places Sandy in the context of human-induced climate change and storms of the future. Possible solutions for strong storms and rising sea level are also presented. This 32-page enrichment module is ideal for any course addressing the risks of rising sea level due to human-induced climate change.

Paul Bierman is a Professor of Geology and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont. Now in his 14th year at UVM, Paul's areas of expertise include understanding how humans and landscapes interact using the fields of hydrology, chemistry, and geomorphology. He is particularly interested in the impact of humans on the built and natural landscape as well as science education at all levels. Paul teaches a variety of courses including Earth Hazards, Geohydrology, and Geomorphology. He has a BA degree from Williams College and his Ph.D. from the University of Washington. Research interests include the rate of bedrock weathering involves field work in such locations as central Australia and the Canadian arctic. Bierman directs UVM's Cosmogenic Nuclide Extraction Lab -- one of only a handful of laboratories in the country dedicated to the preparation of samples for analysis of 10-Be and 26-Al from pure quartz. He manages the Landscape Change Program, an NSF-supported digital archive of historic Vermont Landscape images used for teaching and research, available at uvm.edu/landscape. Paul's research is funded by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Geological Survey, the National Geographic Society, and the U.S. Army. In 1996, Paul was awarded the Donath medal as the outstanding young scientist of the year by the Geological Society of America; he has since received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation specifically for integrating scientific education and research. In 2005, Paul was awarded the NSF Distinguished Teaching Scholar award in recognition of his on-going attempts to integrate these two strands of his academic life. Together, Paul, his graduate and undergraduate students, and collaborators have 50 publications in refereed journals and books.
