Hurricanes: Science and Society (http://www.hurricanescience.org/) will host a five-part webinar series in the spring of 2012. The webinar series will provide participants with an opportunity to “meet” some of the country’s top hurricane scientists and introduce a range of hurricane topics from the basics of hurricane science to advances in forecasting hurricanes to preparing for an approaching hurricane. Each of the five one hour webinars will have leading members of the hurricane research and forecasting fields discussing their research and answering questions from the “audience.” Target audiences include instructors of high school and undergraduate level courses and informal science educators. However, citizens of all ages are welcome to tune in.
