Understanding Florida’s Weather: Hurricanes (actually Tropical Cyclones) Part 2


Things To Know

Welcome to the Summer Class for Understanding Florida’s Weather. The study of weather (Meteorology) is not for the unmotivated. There are no equations or sophisticated mathematics in this lecture series. No one knows it all (just ask a real Meteorologist). Although there are regional characteristics, the weather behaves the same everywhere on the planet. Participants will receive clear explanations, hands-on demonstrations, visualizations, exercises, video multimedia presentations, and many good stories.
