          Storms and Their Socio-Eco Impact                 

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD The course will
          investigate  the  physical  processes that
          generate      and      sustain      severe
          storms/high-impact    weather,   including
          hurricanes, nor'easters, blizzards and ice
          storms,  severe  thunderstorms  and  flash
          floods.  We will adopt a regional focus on
          the    Mid   Atlantic,   a   region   that
          experiences   one   of  the  most  diverse
          climates  of any  physiographic provine in
          North  America,  and where  violent storms
          regularly impact the lives of more than 50
          million   residents.    The   course  will
          examine    the    historical   record   of
          significant summer, fall and winter storms
          and their associated socioeconomic impacts
          on      infrastructure     (transportation
          networks,  power  utilities,  agriculture,
          water  management, etc.) and the health of
          regional ecosystems such as the Blue Ridge
          and  Chesapeake Bay. We  will also examine
          the  intense scientific debate surrounding
          global  warming  and its  possible link to
          both  frequency and  intensity of Atlantic
          hurricanes. Prerequisite: GES 311
