Hurricane Frequency and Intensity DLESE Reviewed Collection
In recent years more and more attention has been paid to the Earth's climate and how it is evolving. When studying hurricanes it is important to understand that, for a hurricane to grow, warm water is an absolute necessity. So if the Earth continues to warm, what does that mean for hurricanes and their intensity? In this lesson, the student will look at past hurricane data by researching the intensity and frequency of hurricanes using the Live Access Server and several Internet sites found in the Lesson Links section.
