Hurricane Tracking part of Cutting Edge:Hurricanes-Climate Change Connection:Activities
This is a homework assignment that focuses student attention on ongoing hurricane/tropical storm development, often during the height of hurricane season. The students are directed to a web site (I like intellicast.com for this) that provides storm log info, with the entire history of wind speed and pressure. They plot these variables against time and analyze the result.
