Tornadoes! Twisters! Tsunamis! Oh My!
Hurricanes, droughts, snowstorms, flooding…extreme weather can happen at any time, anywhere and it affects all of us. In 2014, the United States experienced eight weather and climate disasters with losses exceeding one billion dollars each, including drought in the West, five severe storm events, flooding in Michigan and the Northeast, and a winter storm that affected the Midwest, Northeast and Southeast.
In this course, students will learn "the basics" about weather patterns, extreme weather and climate change. Additionally, students will learn about how various weather systems impact human beings around the world.
