This data tip from Bridge, the Ocean Sciences Education Teacher Resource Center archive, includes a variety of educational sites to visit, and a data exercise on hurricanes. Topics covered are: "What exactly is a hurricane, and how is it formed?" and "Who flies into the eye of a storm?" Real-time coordinates can be accessed during hurricane season to track a hurricane's path, and archived coordinates can be used for practice out-of-season.
