Earth Science Week Activity – Hurricane Analysis

This week is Earth Science Week. ESW was established in 1998 by the American Geosciences Institute with the purpose of helping the public to “gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth Sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth.”

Even before the Fall of mankind, God gave Adam and Eve the responsibility of stewarding the Garden of Eden. All humans have a God-given responsibility to use the resources around us to subdue the Earth, so earth science is something that all of us can engage with and celebrate!

Here’s a project on the Earth Science Week website that you can do from home [http://www.earthsciweek.org/classroom-activities/analyzing-hurricanes-using-web-and-desktop-gis]! Hurricanes have been in the news recently. Using the Internet, you can analyze the paths and activity of past hurricanes to see if there are patterns.

We’d love to hear your analysis. Also, do you agree with some of the assumptions scientists make about man’s role in climate change?
