FSU COAPS Predicts Below Average Atlantic Hurricane Season
The 2014 forecast calls for a 70% chance of 5 to 9 named storms, including 2 to 6 hurricanes. The mean forecast is for 7 named storms, including 4 hurricanes, and an average accumulated cyclone energy of 60. More >
New Study Sheds Light on Global Warming Trends
New research by a team of Florida State University scientists shows the first detailed look at global land surface warming trends over the last 100 years, illustrating precisely when and where different areas of the world started to warm up or cool down. More >
Health Effects of Climate Change
Florida Atlantic University continues studying the effects of sea level rise in South Florida with a new focus on climate change related health risks. The Florida Public Health Institute serves as the lead on the project, made possible by a grant from the Kresge Foundation. More >
