We will explore how the background environment over the Caribbean influences the Atlantic hurricanes and how this affects the Southeastern United States.

Science Saturdays is a series of lectures and demonstrations that are held on the first Saturday of each month in the SECU Daily Planet Theater at 11 am. The presentations mainly target middle- and high-school students, but everyone is welcome to attend.
