Hurricanes

What's Next? Teach-Out

Hurricanes: What's Next? is part of the University of Michigan's Teach-Out series. For more information, visit Teach-Out.org. The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane season produced several incredibly destructive storms, and raised many questions. As we enter the 2018 hurricane season, we will re-explore the following questions: What drives a hurricane? How accurate are hurricane models? How do authorities prepare for hurricanes and, when destructive events like Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria happen, how do we respond? Was 2017's hurricane season a fluke, or should we start planning for similar storms to appear more frequently? 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! Find new opportunities at Teach-Out.org
