Hurricanes

What's Next?

Hurricanes: What's Next? is part of the University of Michigan's Teach-Out series. For more information, visit teachout.org.
The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane season has produced incredibly destructive storms, and has raised many questions. What drives a hurricane? How accurate are hurricane models? How do authorities prepare for hurricanes and, when destructive events like Hurricanes Harvey and Irma happen, how do we respond? Is this hurricane season a fluke, or should we start planning for more/similar storms? In this Teach-Out, we will explore the science of hurricanes, hurricane forecasting and monitoring, and with what confidence can we attribute these storms to a warming ocean.

A Teach-Out is:

-an event – it takes place over a fixed, short period of time

-an opportunity – it is open for free participation to everyone around the world

-a community – it will be joined by a large number of diverse individuals

-a conversation – an opportunity to give and take ideas and information from people

The University of Michigan Teach-Out Series provides just-in-time community learning events for participants around the world to come together in conversation with the U-M campus community, including faculty experts. The U-M Teach-Out Series is part of our deep commitment to engage the public in exploring and understanding the problems, events, and phenomena most important to society.

Teach-Outs are short learning experiences, each focused on a specific current issue. Attendees will come together over a few days not only to learn about a subject or event but also to gain skills. Teach-Outs are open to the world and are designed to bring together individuals with wide-ranging perspectives in respectful and deep conversation. These events are an opportunity for diverse learners and a multitude of experts to come together to ask questions of one another and explore new solutions to the pressing concerns of our global community. Come, join the conversation!
