The 2013 Hurricanes: Science and Society (HSS) Webinar Series for Educators is presented by The University of Rhode Island, Graduate School of Oceanography in partnership with the Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE).

This series of three, 1-hour webinars will focus on current topics in tropical storms and preparation for the upcoming 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Each webinar is designed to provide educators with an opportunity to "meet" some of the top hurricane forecasters and scientists in the country, while learning about their research and being introduced to a range of hurricane related topics. Target audiences are informal science educators, instructors of high school, instructors of undergraduate level courses, and other educators.
