This laboratory activity allows a student to explore trends in hurricane intensity, the possible impact of climate change on hurricanes, and understanding uncertainty in trends. This tool can be used as an aid to teach topics such as Data Analysis, Linear Slope,Confidence Interval, Student’s t-distribution, and Standard Deviation in Statistics.
