Information about the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season available on the Hurricanes: Science and Society Website (www.hurricanescience.org)
On May 19, 2011, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center (CPC) released their 2011 Atlantic hurricane season outlook.
The conditions expected this year have historically produced some active Atlantic hurricane seasons. Therefore, the 2011 season could see activity comparable to a number of active seasons since 1995.
More details and a link to NOAA’s 2011 Atlantic hurricane season outlook can be found on the homepage of the Hurricanes: Science and Society website. Links and information about Hurricane Preparedness Week, which takes from May 22-May 28, 2011, can also be located on the Hurricanes: Science and Society homepage.
The Hurricanes: Science and Society website and associated educational resources provide information on the science of hurricanes, methods of observing hurricanes, modeling and forecasting of hurricanes, how hurricanes impact society, and how people and communities can prepare for and mitigate the impacts of hurricanes. There is also a hurricane history interactive, hurricane case studies, and a special section for educators. The information on the Hurricanes: Science and Society website is based solely on published scientific research and has undergone thorough peer review by a panel of scientific experts.
The Hurricanes: Science and Society website and educational resources have been developed by the University of Rhode Island (URI) Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO). Funding has been provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
