Because it recognizes the importance of U.S. coastal areas to the nation's economy, the U.S. National Ocean Service has formed a task force that is studying the trends and impacts of hurricanes on coastal regions. They have invited your students to participate.

This story map is intended to be used with students who have access to a computing device in a 1:1 or 1:2 setting.  Using various visualizations (i.e., images, charts, and graphs), students will explore the urban heat island effect using land surface temperature and vegetation data.

In this lesson, students use mathematics to form a basic model of the area covered by a hurricane. They evaluate the usefulness of the model for determining potential impacts on people and communities and use the model to look at the potential reach of a hurricane.
