Since Faisal Hossain demonstrated that certain dams could make such rainfall events more extreme and frequent in a December 2009 publication, he and his research group -- Sustainability, Satellites, Water and Environment -- have catapulted into the media spotlight, including a February 2010 interview with The Naked Scientist that aired live on the BBC and a feature in National Geographic News. Now he's featured on NASA's "What on Earth?" news site.
