Content Cover Image

SUMMARY

2 min 31 sec

Dr. Heidi Cullen of Climate Central explains why this hurricane season is looking like it will be particularly active, and how a hurricane might mix with the Gulf oil spill.

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING MATERIALS

Watch >> Do Hurricanes and Oil Mix

TEACHING NOTES / CONTEXT FOR USE

This video could be an interesting addition to a class about weather patterns, specifically hurricanes. It covers the prediction for the 2010 hurricane season, exploring why scientists thought it would be such an active season. It could, therefore, be used to show what conditions are favorable for hurricane development, and it could also be used as prediction analysis. It also addresses how hurricanes interact with oil spills.

ASSESSMENT

Assessment is at the discretion of the educator as to how the video is applied and the expectations after viewing it.
