Archive: Science Update: Tropical Climatology and Hurricane Hazards, May 13, 2020

This web seminar will provide an overview of the seasonality, timing, and risks associated with Tropical weather systems. We will provide a broad cursory examination of the meteorological and climatological factors that underpin the challenges of forecasting these unique storms. More importantly, we will identify the vulnerabilities society faces from these annual phenomena. A very early prognostication for the 2020 Hurricane Season will be presented, noting the limitations of such early outlooks. Finally, we will contextualize some of these concepts, as they appear in our AMS-DataStreme program for K-12 teachers.

For more than 25 years, the AMS has directly enhanced K-12 teacher preparation and practice, and ultimately student learning through the DataStreme Project, Project Atmosphere and Project Ocean.
