Professor Perry Samson leading Hurricane Teach-Out through Oct. 2

Climate & Space professor Perry Samson is teaching a FREE online Coursera course entitled “Hurricanes: What Next?" He will be joined by professors Ricky Rood and Chris Ruf along with CLaSP alumnus and member of the CLaSP National Advisory Board Jeff Masters. The class runs through October 2nd.

“As Florida assesses the damage from Hurricane Irma, Texas continues to rebuild from Harvey and meteorologists keep their eyes on Maria, our department experts in weather events and their aftermath offer the public a new Teach-Out on hurricanes.

“Questions addressed include: What drives a hurricane? How accurate are hurricane models? How do authorities prepare for hurricanes and, when destructive events like hurricanes Harvey and Irma happen, how do and should we respond? Is this hurricane season a fluke, or should we start planning for more and similar storms?

“The Office of Academic Innovation created Teach-Outs, which are short, just-in-time learning opportunities that allow people across the world to engage with experts on various topics of national and international interest.”
